Placemaking is both an idea and a collection of activities that make a place feel welcoming, inclusive, and designed around people, not cars or buildings. It often revolves around the concept of “lighter, quicker, cheaper”, to take advantage of low-cost, easy-to-implement ideas that instantly put visitors and residents at ease. From colorful crosswalk designs, to café tables and chairs, to parklets and planter boxes, placemaking helps define a downtown’s unique vibe.

The resources listed below will inspire you with new ideas while helping you understand where to focus your time and how to enlist support for your efforts.
