VE in Combination with Mediation: Supertool for Multiparty Plan Making

Instructor: Dorine Cleton, LLM (CLETON&COM)

PDUs: 7.5 hours
Core Competency: Pre-Workshop Stage

After presenting and wining the paper of the Year award in Austin, Texas (2018) for “VE in combination with Mediation as Super tool for Multiparty Plan Making”, many people inquired: How does it work exactly? How do I get the information, joined criteria? How do you get from random suggestions about the area to VE, FAST and a coherent process that ends with doable alternatives? In Portland (2019) I conducted a half day workshop to explain how the method works and letting the attendees experience several steps themselves. The workshop received positive feedback, but there was one comment: please make it into a full day workshop. This is that full day workshop - it will allow more interaction and more changes for the attendees to really experience what the method is all about.

It will provide an introduction to mediation, will give an inside in the facilitation skills needed and simple methods that have proven to work and will give an overall view about the process of combining mediation (PPNP) and Value Engineering. The workshop will look into the difference in this process in the information phase (getting information form citizens, the city and the developer), criteria, FAST, team), the joined effort (specialist, citizens and stakeholders), as well as the presentation to all parties, citizen, city and development company. It will also provide information about how the city, board as well as city council, civil servants, specialist can and have to be involved. Lessons learned will be shared. Special attention is given to the Pre-workshop Stage.
