charrettes for transportation Planning

The NCI Charrette System™ training teaches you how to apply the complete charrette system to transportation planning. NCI trainings are organized around a series of in-depth case study exercises, conducted in a small team format. The goal of the exercises is to teach the essential tools for assessing and planning transportation projects using a NCI charrette. The Columbia Pike Master Plan in Arlington, VA is the transportation planning case study used in the NCI Charrette System™ training.
