A Vision for Sustainability and Growth in Savona, New York

In Fall 2014, Professor William Dean led the Architecture and Design Departments senior Urban Design Studio in working with the Village of Savona, which is located in New Yorks Southern Tier, as the subject for the semesters community visualization study.  Working individually and in small groups, the 2014 ATP students researched and documented the subject area and completed a site analysis which included a visual survey of the defined physical characteristics representing Urban Design Excellence and Design Linkages within the community.  The report identified the municipalities strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats based on conversations with area residents and local officials.  The information generated during these initial efforts were used as a point of departure to illustrate and explain a positive vision for sustainability and growth of the Village of Savona through community engagement.
