Title: Addressing the People vs. Place Urban Planning Debate: The Human Development-Overlay District Project and the Case of Hollywood
Conference: 40th annual Urban Affairs Association conference in Waikiki, HI. March 2010
This presentation discusses how the Human Development-Overlay District project has been carried out by the Hollywood Community Studio, the on-site outfit created due to the HD-OD plan requiring the creation of a community change center in each national HD-OD project area. The presentation also discusses local contextual factors contributing to how the Hollywood Community Studio is implementing the HD-OD project including what goals have been set, what challenges have arisen, and what changes have taken place during the first year of the project. The paper addresses the reality of localizing national initiated projects such as the HD-OD project and what nuances emerge due to the characteristics, local history, and socio-political contexts that shape projects with challenging goals such as addressing the people versus place debate that historically plague urban planning in the United States.
