“Placemaking” or “Spacemaking”……..

I was reading an article in a local paper about a planning conference that took place recently and I had a good laugh. Looks to me like the adults have lowered to a level of childhood dreaming.

Looks to me like planning will no longer be of the people by the people and for the people it will be “of the UN by the UN for the UN”. A neat little organization called the Project for Public Spaces, a non-profit organization that helps communities create public spaces based around the concept of “placemaking.” This organization I am sure came with strings attached (Federal money) and a mandate to follow the procedures and guidelines laid out. This all fits in with social engineering and changing the way people think about our government officials and what they actually do.

These nice feel good measure might include reclaimed chalkboards to put into a park. Other feel good ideas that actually have been implemented are,  public art, community gardens, bike lanes, etc.

City planning has always been done top down: they announce to the public what they will do, then implement the project. This has been called  the “DAD” approach (decide, announce,defend). But with e the new concept it will be “POP” what the people want (public owns project).

This could include experimenting to see what the public likes. Like a temporary park, for instance, if the people do not like it then scrap it. Put up art and see again, oops maybe not take it down. Little events (of some sort) maybe again the people don’t like it. Now how much money has been spent on trial and error? But according to the “Project for Public Spaces” This is a better way of planning.

But if you do not like it you will be outcast, looked down upon, called ungrateful and maybe even “Deplorable”
