Growing Collaborations that Matter

Louisiana Food Access Summit

Kim Mitchell, SMBB Architects & Planners

Strategic Doing across the country

Strap on your goggles... It’s a whole new game

Traditional Planning • Agile Planning
Hierarchal process • Collaborative process (guided open network)
Public preference • Balance (open participation / leadership direction) Plan, then what? • Implement while planning Guide Book • Capacity Growing Iterative Process Infrequent updates • Continuous revisions / continuous learning
(every 5 years)

Periodic data analysis • Continuous data analysis Individual Risks • Shared Risks Individual Rewards • Shared Reward

(missed opportunities) High Opportunity

Costs • Co-created value (link & leverage: 1≥ 2)

Political stakeholders • Civic Shareholders

Political Connections as Drivers • Design Quality as Value Driver
Avoid complexities to obtain Consensus • Engage Complexities and Connections

…as we uncover new ways to guide and use our networks
investable opportunities emerge when we connect planning and doing…

public & private opportunities that co-create value, manage risks equitably & generate positive investment returns. (1 ≥ 2 to achieve exponential growth)

3. Guide Collaborative Action – Agile Planning to connect planning & doing;

rebuild a green & smart infrastructure for a 21st century neighborhood; develop a green workforce and creative economy that includes & lifts existing neighborhood residents.

4. Create Resilience through Mixed Income, Affordable Neighborhoods – Solutions to sustain mixed income & affordability 5. Develop a Vibrant Civic Economy that supports a Vibrant Market Economy – grow environment of trust required to share ideas, share

resources and connect relational networks; GROW capacity and resilience of residents of Allendale and Ledbetter inner city neighborhoods

Local food system

1. What should the health profile look like for a 21st Century neighborhood of 20,000 mixed income people – nutrition, exercise, health care…? 2. How will we align, link and leverage our resources to invest in that health system? 3. Who will collaborate to shape innovative health systems for this neighborhood? 4. How will we sustain an affordable health system for this mixed income population? 5. What is the connection of this health system in establishing a trusted civic economy?

Proposed Development Sequence
Development will start around the Market / Kitchen Incubator / Distribution Incubator with apartments above and begin a Community Garden as part of the Market. Initial development will also begin at the corner of David Raines & MLK Drive. Development is planned to grow from the edges to the center until complete. The development concept includes a 21st century infrastructure that is “green” & “smart” and will include alternative energy as part of a distributed power concept and waste composting for the community garden.
