Abstract

In post-communist Albania, municipalities are trying to encourage public involvement in land use planning but have limited experience in this field. Our project designed and implemented a participatory planning process to encourage residents of Stajka, a village in northern Albania, to develop ideas to revitalize a park in the center of the village. By building relationships with community members, and putting on events to animate the park, we helped catalyze community interest in redesigning the park.
