“I must take a moment to complement NCI on the completeness and clarity of the NCI Charrette System DVD.  The spirit of what is possible for Dennis Port is very clearly captured by the detail of dereliction faced in Florida and the spirit and tone you set.  I am very proud to be able to provide my community with such a well thought out pre-charrette “warm –up” tool.”

Tom Huettner

People say that you can't really understand what a charrette does unless you have seen one in action. The NCI Charrette System DVD is the next best thing to being there. This DVD places you into key moments within the seven-day East Fort Myers, FL charrette. Hear what participants are saying before and after the charrette. Witness how the charrette team takes a project from a blank canvas to a developed plan. The DVD also tells the stories from Providence, RI and Ocean Springs, MS after Hurricane Katrina.

Featured in the DVD are elected officials and community members from the three cities as well as Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Victor Dover, Charles Bohl, James Moore, Bill Lennertz, and David Brain.

The DVD is designed as an educational tool containing a 13-minute overview and a full 35-minute documentary. The essential companion to this DVD is the NCI Charrettes CD-ROM, which contains a lecture with PowerPoint describing the NCI Charrette System.
