Master Planning: Cuba, New York Phase II
In a preliminary phase of this project Alfred students developed site plans and SWOT Analysis for Allegany County, one of the poorest counties in New York. Based on this analysis, faculty selected Cuba, NY, as the focus area for the 2010 ATP project and generated nine different conceptual master plans. A new group of students will review previous data and use it as a starting point for further exploration that will include public meetings and a design charette. This community engagement will be used to sift through the large number of previously-explored ideas to resolve the strongest projects and establish a clear direction going forward. It is anticipated that students will also be faced with new ideas from the stakeholders and will have to agree on a sensitive way to integrate them into the developing plans.
