JP McNeil – CAUPD, Shenzhen

Though he has traveled extensively throughout the US, spending the summer in China will be JP’s first real international experience (unless you count Canada). JP is a first year MURP specializing in Land Use and Transportation. Of particular interest to him are issues surrounding transit and rail, the allocation of housing to migrant populations, the redevelopment of urban villages, the displacement of residents, and the role of public participation in the Chinese planning context. He is also very interested in learning about placemaking and the preservation of historic sites in a rapidly urbanizing country. He also hopes to translate his karaoke skills into a spot onto a Chinese television program.
