Summary

Incorporating the views of youth into a development plan is critical to ensuring its long term success. Finding ways of engaging youth, however, can be very difficult. In order to get them interested and acquainted with basic planning our group created a basic board game which asks participants to think about planning decisions. These participants will learn types of housing and the costs and trade offs of each. Ideally this will also get them more engaged with the city in general.
