Effective public engagement is the cornerstone of the traditional charrette process. Though it is incredibly important to successful planning, it also requires a significant time commitment from participants. In recent years, many firms have sought ways to increase engagement from underrepresented groups and bring in new voices. Virtual public engagement has been gaining traction in a number of different venues, including new tools and techniques that may be a requirement for urban design and planning firms wanting to continue their work in the age of social distancing. By transcending the need to gather in person, virtual charrettes offer an innovative opportunity to bridge the gap among stakeholders and hear from a more diverse audience.

Victor Dover, Principal-in-Charge at Dover, Kohl, & Partners, discussed the virtual strategy he has used to ensure broader and more inclusive engagement. Kim DeLaney, Director of Strategic Development & Policy at Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, spoke about a recent virtual charrette the council hosted.
