Assuring Community Benefits in Military Base-Closing Redevelopment Processes[CM 2.0; PDH/HSW 2.0] BEGWhat should be the role of the impacted community in large-scale development processes? In this session,Georgia STAND-UP argues that to be implemented properly and be truly sustainable every such projectshould include enforceable provisions for benefitting the community as determined by that community,formalized by a Community Benefits Agreement (CBA). In the redevelopment of the 488-acre Fort McPhersonArmy Base, community leaders asked Georgia STAND-UP for help, which in turn engaged a Georgia Techplanning studio to create a citizen-guided action plan to identify community needs, aspirations and priorities.To be able to press for inclusion of its plan in upcoming development negotiations, the community realizedthey needed to create a viable, non-profit entity. Good smart-growth strategy should recognize that everydevelopment involves private sector, government and community purposes, resources and expectations,yet without a CBA component, the community is often left out.➤ Moderator: Michael Dobbins, FAIA, AICP, Professor of the Practice of Planning, College of Architecture,Georgia Tech➤ Deborah Scott, Executive Director, Georgia STAND-UP➤ Leslie Caceda, Community Planner, Georgia STAND-UP➤ Pamela Newkirk, Community Member, McPherson Action Community Coalition➤ Karen Babino, Co-Chair, McPherson Action Community Coalition41Nautilus 1 D.
