Managing Downtown Public Spaces represents the culmination of the first ten years of Project for Public Spaces' existence, experiencing and thinking about downtowns. During that time, the organization completed studies in more than 50 different cities of all sizes, gradually learning that management is often more important than design when it comes to successful public spaces.

This study of 200 downtown organizations that were members of the International Downtown Executives Association, funding in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, focuses on the evolving field of public space management, including supplementing municipal services, programming and event planning, and facilitating design improvements.
