SKU LGC2016-06

Community Vitality and Placemaking (04-20-2016): Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. It involves asking questions of the people who live, work, and play in a particular space to discover their needs and aspirations. This information is then used to create a common vision for that place. The vision can evolve quickly into an implementation strategy to improve all of the spaces that comprise the gathering places within a community?its streets, sidewalks, parks, buildings, and other public spaces. This program provides an overview of how to use placemaking to foster communities that are more socially, physically, and economically viable.
