This session will outline a checklist for successful placemaking projects and discuss methods for finding the people who will champion them. The examples from Columbus include parklet projects, the annual Open Streets event, the community organization Placemakes, the West Cherry Street project, work with local artists, and the Discovery District Placemaking Plan. Through these stories, learn about the funding mechanisms, approval processes and local partnerships that allowed each effort to come to fruition.
