Arch272: Urban Design Studio. The project of will be a comprehensive study of a selected neighborhood and a complete design of an affordable housing prototype for the East St. Louis. This housing model will be designed for energy- and cost-efficiency, easy maintenance and will address the varying needs of its occupants. Occupants may include individuals, families, single-family households, and those in need of transitional housing. Site Planning, density and circulation, outdoor and community spaces will be addressed. Community members will work together with the students in both planning and implementation stages of the project.

Stacy Harwood, Assistant Professor Department of Urban and Regional Planning

UP374: Neighborhood Planning. The proposed service-learning project is a neighborhood history of Emerson Park in East St. Louis. The history will focus on neighborhood action starting from the "man-hole organizing days" and the early involvement of the university to the creation of a neighborhood plan, the evolution of Emerson Park Development Corporation and its current programs. The students will construct a narrative based on the point of view of long time neighborhood activists.
