The university-community partnership is a mechanism through which a university recognizes its strategic role in shaping the health of the surrounding community. The Florida State University’s Department of Urban & Regional Planning Fall 2010 Studio examined Tallahassee conditions and national best practices to identify approaches to local redevelopment. The Ohio State
University’s Campus Partners for Community Urban Redevelopment and the Chattanooga Downtown Riverfront programs will be presented as models of redevelopment processes. How local
conditions influence adaptation of these examples of partnership as instruments for infill will be considered and the community benefits inherent in such organizations will be stressed.

  • AbbyThe examples that Nicole just spoke about provide a good framework for a university-community partnership at Florida State. We envision Florida State, state and local government, citizens and the business community working together to redevelop the Tennessee Street corridor. Forming a Campus Partners group in Tallahassee would benefit all stakeholders by acting as a neutral, goal-driven entity that could mediate any conflicts between parties. Campus Partners would facilitate these main goals for the redevelopment.Integrate University & Frenchtown neighborhoodDesign of the corridor to encourage both the university community and frenchtown residents to come together. Pontalba Parkway provides amenities for both university community and frenchtown communityEconomic Development-- Live-work business incubators – partnership with FSU’s college of business/entrepreneurship program/EBV program- create jobs for Frenchtown residents- bring in more retailers and service providers to create a better mix of commercial uses – day & nightSocial Programs-- Pontalba Pathways – halfway house for criminal rehabilitation-- Education programs -- Childcare-- Employment resource center

  • Role of the CRA:Aesthetic improvements in the area – sidewalks, etc.Community events to draw attention to the areaFunding for property owners to make improvements- facadesRole of local government:Fast track permitting process for developersExemptions for parking, impact fees* Some of these programs are already available but rarely used – local government needs to make sure developers know about these benefits.
