The Placemaking Initiative Council provides a forum where public and private sectors can share best practices in urban design, mixed-use development, and planning. The mission of the Placemaking Council is to provide a forum where the public and private sectors come together to share best practices in land use planning, urban design, and mixed use development to create and implement temporary and permanent placemaking projects. The underlying premise is that great places, whether urban or suburban, encourage inclusive social interaction, pride of place, comfortable living and working environments as well as being great stages for all manner of human activities. FY18 Co-Chairs: Robert Atkinson and Tanya Stern. Meeting Frequency: Quarterly (2 hours). Cost: $100 Private Sector; $50 Public Sector. Staff Contact: Lisa Rother.
