AARP Placemaking Workshop Livecast

11/13/2019
11:00 AM - 03:00 PM


The 2019 AARP Livable Communities Placemaking Workshop will showcase the many ways local leaders and community volunteers can help to create public spaces that are vibrant, welcoming, safe and accessible. Workshop attendees will:
 


  • Learn about the economic, social and health impacts of placemaking 


  • Be introduced to examples of infrastructure-intensive placemaking efforts that have successfully transformed a city, town, street or neighborhood for the better


  • See how smaller, temporary “pop-up” demonstration projects (including parklets, bike lanes, plazas and alley “activations”) can be used to inspire a community


  • Gain strategies and tools for implementing placemaking projects
