Laurel Torney and Kyle Shipley, both Junior Specialists at ICE, participated in a UC Davis Extension class; Studio 30: Studio Planning and Design seminar; last quarter and got a taste of current urban and landuse planning in the City of Davis. Torney adds, "The class has been very rewarding and it has been great doing some real-world work in the planning profession."
Here's a little more about Studio 30: The class is taught by Jeff Loux and Julia Johnston of the Land Use and Natural Resources divison of the UC Davis Extension. The class consists of both planning professionals as well as undergraduate and graduate students involved in planning-related studies. Fall and winter quarter was designed to aid the City of Davis' innovation park Task Force execute a feasibility study about building an innovation park in the City of Davis. In Spring 2012 and the continuing quarters, the class will work with AECOM in Sacramento for the City of Lodi's Climate Action Plan.
