City Repair's Placemaking Guidebook 2nd Edition

ByCity Repair

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
City Repair is a small grassroots non-profit that supports and inspires communities and individuals to creatively transform the places where they live. This guidebook provides a detailed overview of creative community placemaking and how to start making your community a better place. Every neighborhood – indeed, every street – is different in terms of history, environment, project possibilities and constraints. This Guidebook begins where most American communities find themselves: socially isolated, yet relatively stable. If you are fortunate enough to live in a neighborhood where people are already engaged in community building, then start wherever it makes sense. Keep in mind, however, that even the most socially active neighborhoods include people who feel disempowered and might benefit from the initial steps of the placemaking process. This guide is not a “recipe” for placemaking. These ideas are here for your reference and are meant to be a springboard for your imagination!
