Urban design and placemaking in Naga

NOTWITHSTANDING Presentation Zen's reservations over Slideshare and similar shared slideshows on the web, I am posting the Powerpoint material used by the UBC Investment Promotion group, which Aldy Manrique liked best.

I am one with Aldy in regard to the Naga River; the San Antonio, Texas experience shared by the group, as well as the Business Improvement Area (BIA) approach used by Vancouver, are models we can use in revisiting local efforts to revitalize our very own major waterway.

Joey Co brought up the cultural aspect, a weakness that he said constrains Naga residents from replicating the San Antonio initiative, but I fully agree with Nora here; the river where the annual fluvial procession (now becoming biannual, given the summer Peñafrancia event that is being slowly developed, an effort led by the local archdiocese itself) takes place is a huge positive that can trump any potential opposition.

As usual, it can be downloaded as an Adobe PDF file (or so says Slideshare) owing to filesize limits imposed on uploads. The slides follow after the jump.

great stuff. and plenty of lessons to be learned from other cities.

You should move quickly into conceptual plans for the river walk and urban design standards for the CBD.

But top on the list, i think, is the community visioning process. and Naga has the track record in public participation to move this forward.

Willy,

Thanks a lot for sharing the slide presentations, they will defintely help me discuss accurately the groups' research report and viable recommendations.

Hi Urbano: The three other presentations are up now, including transport and land use. Re AYLC, I don't know if they had a representative, but I was hoping Donald Bercasio would be interested.

His blog however hasn't been updated lately.

Hi Aldy: I'm happy you enjoyed it. If there's anything I can do to help, please feel free to drop me an email.

Hi Nen: How's Singapore? It's only after you left that I figured out your "moving" entry.

I saw and enjoyed the first part of Ted Rosling's presentation but didn't finish it because of inconsistent DSL connection. I will try however to download the 194-MB package.
