Choose Area 1 or 2
You may use LEGO bricks from home (if you have them) or just have a conversation about what type of density you would like to see (using the LEGO brick sheet for reference).
The zoning scenario is based on existing zoning – your job is to figure out whether it should stay the same or change. You can use the guiding questions for prompts.
If possible, we suggest doing the activity with at least one other person.

needs (such as safety/security, employment, and personal purpose), I now see that
approaches to public health can vary and do not necessarily have to medical or clinical
Having grown up in the Inland Empire, I already knew quite a bit about the community of
San Bernardino. As with any program or project I tried to be aware of my biases and
check them before proceeding with any work. I feel I am biased in this situation in the
sense that this is a community I deeply care for and hope to be able to serve. This has
not changed after this project. It was inspiring to learn more about an organization that
is passionate about the work they do and hear from people that are committed to giving
back to the community.
They are an organization I would like to work with in the future because it sounds like they are making a real difference in people’s lives. Through working on this project I realized how important home ownership is. It taught me that the local community would benefit so much from owning their own homes. I now understand how important it is for people to own their homes so they invest in their community. While doing the projects for the class this semester I realized how buying a home is more than just a good financial investment. Buying a home also reduces poverty and crime and increases graduation rate from high school.
