Reimagining Our Public Spaces: Save the Date

thoughts from Project for Public Spaces

To introduce you to Project for Public Spaces, we thought we'd share some of their writing:


"As both an overarching idea and a hands-on approach for improving a neighborhood, city, or region, Placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community. 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. More than just promoting better urban design, Placemaking facilitates creative patterns of use, paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place and support its ongoing evolution..."

Coming Soon


Project for Public Spaces is putting the finishing touches on a survey about the use and experience of our downtown public spaces.  Stay tuned - we want to hear from you!

                                      POP UPS

Project for Public Spaces will host a series of Pop Up stations around downtown and the community to provide another opportunity for your input.  Stay tuned for locations, dates and times.
