Place is Powerful
Community members who feel more attached to their communities care more about those communities and play more active roles as community members. Esthetics of the neighborhood, the walkability of the streets, access to open green spaces and and having a favorite place, other than home or work where you can gather, convene and connect. are all aspects of what help contribute to attachment.
Placemaking is intentionally creating vibrant places in communities. We’ll have a more detailed write up soon, in the mean time please enjoy this third party resource.
