Placemaking Assessment Tool
Understand the scope of different types of placemaking and determine which to pursue for your green schoolyard project
The more quality places in a community, the better. This Placemaking Assessment Tool can help a community turn underused places into ones that attract people and activity, and support economic development in alignment with a community’s goals. The first section explains the purpose of the tool and how to use it, along with significant background information on four different types of placemaking referenced throughout the guide (Standard, Strategic, Creative and Tactical). This tool can help communities more effectively engage with community partners to think about placemaking in the context of larger strategic planning efforts. For example, how the design and use of green schoolyards might span beyond a particular school or district to support broader community or regional goals.
