FAQ

 

What is placemaking? . . .

Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Placemaking capitalizes on a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and well being. Strengthening the connection between people and the places they share, placemaking refers to a collaborative process by which we can shape our public realm in order to maximize shared value.

Why should it matter to you? . . .

Because placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community.
