City planning has become so institutionalized that people seldom have a chance to put their intuition to use. Empowering communities to adopt a more holistic approach can bring businesses, housing and a sense of vitality back to downtown streets.
PPS’ placemaking approach goes beyond the typical downtown master planning process. It enables city staff as well as residents to jointly create a vision of what’s best for the downtown and focus on improving the places that are most important to them.
