Great Placemakers Lab


When is the forex market open?

WOW! What a week. I have never been so pumped at a conference before. I hope you felt the same way too! Many of you have already given myself, volunteers and staff many gracious compliments. We couldn’t have done it without you, for no matter how well we had produced the event, without participants, it is all for not.

We would very much appreciate your feedback. Please follow this link to a very quick 10 question survey. We value your opinion.

After recovering and getting my other work priorities back in motion again, I am completing the compilation of the registrant list and sharing of the presentation files. Look for that in a subsequent email shortly.

Again, please take a few moments to share your opinions of last week at this link and thank you again for participating.

Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of neighborhoods and public spaces.

Placemaking capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration and potential, with the intention of creating places that promote people’s health happiness, and well being. (read more…)
