On June 8th, SImagines held their third community visioning workshop, looking at the future of coastal neighborhoods along Staten Island’s South Shore in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Facilitated by Hunter UAP Professor Pablo Vengochea and 5 UAP students working as interns, among others collaborators, the charette brought members of the communities together with professional and academic experts to start imagining what a community vision for a sustainable, resilient Staten Island should include.

A partnership between Hunter College UAP, the American Planning Association, and the Staten Island Chapter of the AIA, SImagines has held similar charettes for the East Shore and the North Shore.
