The Placemaking Hub: An online one-stop
shop for public realm enhancement
City of Minneapolis has developed an online Placemaking Hub, a one-stop shop
for public realm enhancement. It combines a broad range of placemaking tools
available through the City on one web page. The Hub directs users to individual
program websites where details about process, implementation, and necessary
permitting are accessible for community members and neighborhood organizations.
Possible enhancements and
projects featured on the Placemaking Hub include: sidewalk café, bike racks,
bike corrals, litter containers, ash receptacles, paint the pavement, artist
designed utility boxes, other art, parklets, temporary plazas, block events,
community gardens, urban farms, market gardens, trees, plantings, façade
improvements and other tools to enhance a street or corridor.
