We involve your community in creating quality places where people want to live, work, play, shop, learn and visit.
We don't see our efforts as a program, but rather as a relationship between your community and ours team. What does the Placemaking entail? A little bit of everything.
How Communities Benefit
Together we focus on your needs and aspirations. From there, our planners, architects, landscape architects, artists, master gardeners, journalists, event planners and others work with you to make your community not just a place to live, but a place to love. Placemaking is an overarching idea and a hands-on tool for improving a neighborhood, town, city or region. A placemaking approach provides the springboard you need to revitalize your community. When you focus on place, you do everything differently!
Types: Three Types of Placemaking: Vary in Scope, Cost, Schedule and Expertise
Investment: Placemaking Fosters Economic Development and Demographic Renewal
Benefits: Why Placemaking Works
Collaboration: It takes a place to create a community, and a community to create a place.
- Tier 1. Meaningful contact
- Tier 2. Project-based programming
- Tier 3. Extensive or transformational engagement
This third level of engagement has been characterized as a “deep dive.” One assumption is that these projects may engage specialists and/or scholars from several campuses of the University of Nebraska System.
