Public spaces are failing in many communities-and they are often barometers of vitality, social cohesion, and public health. The speaker panel will discuss how to create distinctive public spaces that enhance community identity and social connections, without spending a lot of money. In this interactive and hands-on workshop, planners will be introduced to the concept of “placemaking on a budget,” the process of adding value and meaning to the public realm through community-based revitalization projects rooted in local values, history, culture, and the natural environment. Planners will learn how to identify potential placemaking “canvases” within the built environment and add value to projects through the integration of community values. Using the Beach Boulevard corridor in West Anaheim as their backdrop, planners will work together in small groups to develop simple placemaking project ideas. In addition, planners will gain hands-on experience with new web-based technologies (powered by Crowdbrite) that could be used to enhance community outreach and public participation.
