The Placemaking Grant is a community-building initiative that will support quick-win, transformative projects throughout the city to create and enhance community vibrancy, safety and identity through:
- Activation of leftover and/or underutilized spaces
- Streetscape improvements
- Art and beautification efforts
- Creation of community gathering spaces
This grant, which has a total pool of $50,000, builds upon the opportunities presented in the City’s Placemaking Hub, which provides toolkits to inspire and guide placemaking efforts. The City received 78 Letters of Intent for the grant totaling over $608,000 in requested funds. The following projects have been awarded funding and are expected to be complete by Dec. 31, 2019.
