Here are the ways the Creative Cities International team brings this approach to you.
A VITALITY ASSESSMENT AND REPORTING
Our team of international practitioners offers a full assessment of cities using the principles of the Vitality Index™ and rigorous expert analysis. We provide strategic guidance and advice to municipalities and economic developers. We provide baseline data and comparative analysis of best practice.
The quantitative data covers a full range of demographics, trends, costs and measures of typical and creative infrastructure.
The qualitative data covers critical areas of interest about what citizens think is working well in their city and questions can be adapted to reflect the concerns and values of the community. For example:
- what do residents appreciate about their city and what is specific to it
- its cultural history, its contemporary life, its parks or performing arts, its natural beauty, sports, etc.
- does the city have a vibrant downtown and neighborhoods
We focus our questions on areas that would help those in city government, developers, or civic groups and individual citizens understand how people felt about their community, what was going on on the ground, and what they felt would improve their lives. The analysis of these answers assists in making planning decisions and attracting tourism or new business to the city
PROJECT/URBAN PLANNING ASSESSMENT AND REPORTING
Based on the principles of the Vitality Index™, we offer analysis and evaluation of how projects will affect communities and the potential economic influence of this project. We bring together these factors, evaluate potential success, and let our clients understand the impact of the plans.
Our team focuses on building consensus to better implement strategic goals, offering the most benefit to all stakeholders, as part of a planning design that brings projects in on time and under budget.
Our team shares the CCI approach and perspective through conferences and publications.
