A placemaking approach to public space differs from traditional planning, in that it grows out of a place-based, community-driven, and research-based process.
We work with cities to launch a city or district-wide Placemaking campaign using tools such as the “Power of Ten” as the guiding framework.
PPS provides regular in-house trainings, conferences, and speaking engagements, as well as customized events, tailored to your community.
With the right placemaking and management strategy, public markets can reconnect local economies to communities, while improving public health and supporting local food systems.
When cities treat streets as multi-use places instead of just arteries for moving traffic, they can improve safety and mobility, strengthen communities, enhance sustainability, and contribute to the local economy.
