- Abstract in English : Participation by citizens in the planning process is essential for any wise environmental planning, and urban waterfront revitalization projects are no exceptions. Citizens for whom such projects are planned must play an active role, if the projects are to enjoy long-term success. This study demonstrates the value of visual preference assessments for facilitating citizen participation in urban waterfront revitalization. Participants’ preferences for 40 black and white photographs of present and potential uses of urban waterfronts, when combined with their responses to verbal items on the questionnaire, provide planners, managers, and designers with meaningful information about the type of urban waterfront citizens would like. Visual preference assessments are considered as a tool for facilitating citizen participation in urban waterfront revitalisation.
