On the opening morning of the Placemaking Leadership Council inaugural meeting, 13 PLC members gave brief remarks, accompanied by a single image, on work that they have done to change a place or further the field of Placemaking.

The Placemaking Roundup gave meeting participants a glimpse into the diverse range of projects that their fellow PLC members are involved in, and set the stage for 2 days of inspiring conversation in Detroit.
