Utilizing Placemaking as an Affordable Neighborhood Revitalization Tool
Friday, September 8, 2017
10 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. EDT
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. In addition, it is an affordable tool used to stimulate neighborhood revitalization through local resources, involved people, and creative thinking. Utilizing examples from across the country, this session will illustrate how to bring to life small, affordable urban design projects and placemaking concepts that can have big impacts in neighborhoods and communities. It also focuses on successful recently implemented initiatives throughout Jacksonville's urban core that have morphed into significant drivers of neighborhood revitalization.
