Charrette Services

Download MMSA Charrette Services Brochure

The MMSA planning charrettes operate on three key tenets: utilizing an asset-based approach, addressing the community in a holistic manner, and conducting the exercise in a public forum. First, an assets-based planning approach builds upon the unique assets and qualities a community possesses without trying to make them into some place they are not. Ultimately, this ensures that the plan will be authentic in its nature and affordable in its execution. Second, the holistic approach utilized in the MMSA charrette includes varying degrees of emphasis on four components:

  1. Market Assessment (to understand the economic development factors affecting a community),
  2. Branding and Marketing (to aid the community in communicating its unique promotional messages in a compelling, consistent and effective way),
  3. Design and Planning (to enhance the physical appearance and function of the community), and finally,
  4. Implementation Strategies (to ensure the recommendations of the plan include a road map to turn them into reality).

Each of the above-noted components correspond to the Main Street Four Point Approach: 1) Economic Restructuring, 2) Promotions, 3) Design, and 4) Organization, respectively.
