Civiltech’s Planning and Traffic Studies teams joined the Morton Arboretum staff for a collaborative and hands-on Design Charette for the Arboretum Access Study project. The Civiltech team presented “think big” concepts allowing a deep dive discussion with the staff. Ginkgo Planning and Design, who is a partner on the Civiltech team, provided land use planning support and exciting 3D visuals of the proposed concept which helped bring the ideas to life. The Charette provided an effective and meaningful forum for identifying the alternatives that should be further investigated.
