However, how can we begin to codify a sanctioned process so that placemaking isn’t a one-off effort, but rather an accepted, if not routine way of delivering cities with a stronger sense of place attachment?

The panel will also share their success scaling such initiatives, encouraging a future for how we-- cities and citizens-- might collectively institutionalize the iterative placemaking methodology.
