Thoreau said “there is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no  happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.” In this light, Placemaking is a dynamic human function: it is an act of liberation, of staking claim, and of beautification; it is true human empowerment. What is Placemaking?
Placemaking is turning a neighborhood, town or city from a place you can’t wait to get through to one you never want to leave. Placemaking is creating for everybody Placemaking is the process of giving space a story that is shared by many. What is Placemaking?

If you plan for cars and traffic… you get more cars and traffic.
The erosion of cities by automobiles proceeds as a kind of nibbling. Small nibbles at first but eventually hefty bites. A street is widened here, another is straightened there, a wide avenue is converted to one way flow and more land goes into parking. No one step in this process is in itself crucial but  cumulatively the effect is enormous .   Jane Jacobs, 1954
 
 
A study of three generations of 9 year olds found that by 1990, the radius around the home that children were allowed to play had sunken to a ninth of what it had been in 1970. Richard Louv

When you design your community  around people … you get more people.

Attractions & Destinations Curiosity, chaos, choices, with special places, rest spots, - the art of the path.
Attractions & Destinations Clustered activity points of interest. 10+ Destinations – including food and markets, local retail, art, play, education, health/recreation .
Active Edge Uses  Active building bases
Amenities Public and private seating options Triangulation to support use – clusters of street amenities
Management -  Central to the Solution Programming – daily activity generators/cultural, civic and seasonal celebrations

New York City Street Renaissance
Donald Appleyard, UC Berkeley Professor of Urban Design, quantified the impact of traffic on social ties. HEAVY TRAFFIC 16,000 vehicles per day MEDIUM TRAFFIC 8,000 vehicles per day LIGHT TRAFFIC 2,000 vehicles per day 0.9 friends per person 3.1 acquaintances per person 1.3 friends per person 4.1 acquaintances per person 3 friends per person 6.3 acquaintances per person Broken Streets
Broken Streets I keep my  windows shut I spend more time in the back of my house I forbid my children to play in the streets I go out on the street less often LIGHT TRAFFIC STREET MEDIUM TRAFFIC STREET HEAVY TRAFFIC STREET New Yorkers deal with traffic in the following ways: 7.7% 26.0% 52.2% 56.5% 18.5% 5.1% 7.4% 21.7% 0.0% 2.6% 7.4% 43.5%
The Truth About Traffic 6% Only 6% of shopping below 59 th  Street in Manhattan involves a car. 6% DRIVE 69% WALK 24%  USE TRANSIT Shoppers Are Walkers

Transportation paradigm shift Old Paradigm New Paradigm Large area planning Arterials Access to malls Retail market area - large Single family bedroom communities Big roads, wide intersections, and parking lots Big solutions (interstates/bypasses) Standards-based (Green Book) Performance is about mobility Small area planning Boulevards Access to corner markets Retail Market area - small Mixed residential/office/services with local businesses  Bike paths, sidewalks, narrow streets, and transit Small solutions (road connectivity, context sensitivity) Place-based  Performance is about access and sense of place
The community is the expert You are creating a place not just a design You can’t do it alone They always say it can’t be done You can see a lot just by observing Develop a placemaking vision Power of 10/Triangulation Form supports function Start with the petunias Money is not the issue You are never finished Principles of Creating Great Places Translating Ideas Into Action Implementation Planning & Outreach Techniques Underlying Ideas
Project/Discipline Driven Approach Place  Driven Development Approach
Creating Great Places/Destinations  The   Power of 10 Chicago   needs  10+   major places/destinations. Each neighborhood/downtown   needs   10+   places/destinations. Each   place/destination   must have   10+   things to do. Connect  places   to create   a  district with  100 -1000   things to do. Triangulate   or layer uses to create synergy among   multiple points of interest and diverse activities.
In Conclusion…. Good places breed  healthy activity . People attract people  attract people . When you focus on place,  you do everything differently . It takes many  disciplines and skills   to create a place . It takes a place to create a community, and a  community to create a place .  Amenities  that make a place comfortable are critical.  You can’t know what you are going to end up with. Each place has its own  identity . You can’t have anything less than  excellence You have to have  zealous nuts .
Building Communities   through “Placemaking”  Figure what you want to become Create your vision Where your primary and secondary destinations are/power of 10 Then figure out how to connect each place with another
It has to be a Campaign Develop a vision Become great communicators Search for impediments Organize a strong team Attack Complacency Produce  short term wins Take on  bigger  challenges Connect change to the culture of the  community People Who Make Dramatic Change  By John Kotter
When you come  to a fork in the road, take it.    – Yogi Berra BE BOLD!
