Nishuane Group provided professional Planning services to the American Institute of Architects Legacy Division to develop a regional plan and eight local plans for communes in the Northeast region of Haiti. The regional plan focused on the development and growth of the region between Cap Haitien and Ouananminthe. The project goal included identification of opportunities and resources required to address the physical, infrastructural, environmental and social needs of the communes. The primary challenge was to interconnect the region’s watersheds, transportation gateways, and historical/cultural assets in order to ensure sustainability within the communities. NG team members analyzed existing land uses and provided recommendations for future uses, co-facilitated charettes and visioning sessions, and developed graphics and maps.
