15 Years of Bringing Together Community and Good Design

ExecDirRandyWells

Please join me in celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Florida Community Design Center (FCDC). Founded in May 2001, FCDC was established to promote good community design in the built and natural environment of Gainesville, Alachua County, and the State of Florida.

As of May 26th, I joined the FCDC as Executive Director. Thank you to outgoing Executive Director Forrest Eddleton for his service to the organization and community.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss the great volunteer partnerships that FCDC has engaged in over the last 15 years–and your ideas for how FCDC can contribute to our community and state over the next 15 years. Please contact me at 352-318-9410 or Randy@FLCDC.org to schedule a meeting at our office, 101 N. Main Street.

Since 2001, FCDC has provided educational and reference materials about good design to the general public, provided training opportunities and continuing education for professional designers, and conducted numerous community design exercises, programs and initiatives. We have worked with established educational institutions, city and county government, and other non-profit and community organizations to provide future professionals with opportunities to learn while providing valuable design and community outreach services to the communities we serve. And we have conducted research in the principles, methods, and materials used to build sustainable communities, defined as those which balance economic, environmental, and social equity issues.

Sincerelly,
Randy Wells
