2017 ATP students will partner with the Town of Burns and Village of Canaseraga.  Working individually and in small groups, students will document the subject area and complete a Neighborhood Development Analysis, which includes a visual survey of the defined neighborhood pattern and design of the existing community.

The information generated will be used as a point of departure to illustrate a positive vision for preservation, sustainability and growth of the Village of Canaseraga through community engagement.  The overall goal for student engagement with the community is to develop an inclusive Community Visualization Study that includes a series of design interventions based on the 2014 Comprehensive Plan for the Town of Burns and the Village of Canaseraga.  The study will include a series of before and thematic after images intended to help stakeholders envision possibilities for future development.  Implementation will be possible through grant funding that will require the community to have a clearly defined vision to supplement the recently adopted comprehensive plan.
