    Agenda

    Implementation: Current Projects

  • !!!

    What is Place-making? Place-making is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Place-making capitalizes on a local com-munity's existing assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of cre-ating public spaces that promote quality of life and well being.

    CPTED? Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary ap-proach to deterring criminal behavior through design or (re)design of the built environment. CPTED relies strongly on the crime/opportunity theory, which says the occurrence of a crime depends on 1) the presence of a motivated offender and 2) the conditions of the environment in which that offender is situated. CPTED at-tempts to lessen opportunity for crime. CPTED principles of design include small-scale projects (the strategic use of greenery, lighting, art, etc) and large scale projects (introducing new forms). CPTED looks to increase "eyes on the street. !!!!!!!!

    Place-based work? Culturally competent project planning and execution in context of a clearly defined space/place. These means 1) engaging community, 2) developing or supporting a local gover-nance structure, 3) leveraging community capacity, 4) implementing with community, 5) learning while doing and 6) pivoting when necessary.

  • 9 Steps for Place-making and CPTED: Plan - Select site and assessment of assets and challenges. Find or leverage funds - Start up with project funding and existing resources. It may just take a shift in staff focus (i.e community service). Outreach - Informing stakeholders & inviting them to participant in development and participation. Envision - Solicit community input on design. Render - Visual outputs and share with residents and partners. Approval - Residents, community board, local officials and city agencies. Install - Inform residents of pending project, be inclusive, create a launch & construct w/ help. Manage - You must build into your project idea a management and upkeep commitment. Remem-ber this is a public project. Things happen. Evaluate - Visit your place often and solicit feedback.

  • Place-making and CPTED is not

    the Acquisition of Public Space

    A one-off public event or project (e.i. mural or service day)

    Exclusive

    Done alone

    !

    !

    How do you know if its working?

  • !

    !Builds the communitys trust/faith in your ability to do the work!Familiarizes you with the pervasiveness of an issue (graffiti, refuse, undesirable activity, etc) !Build understanding of your capacity as an organization (do we need more resources to tackle a pervasive or unwieldy issue?) !Introduces the community to gradual change that is guided and executed by the community!Provides programming projects for participants and residents!Keeps spaces positively activated, which in turn discourages undesirable behavior!Transforms the narrative around what activity happens in a space (and in the neighborhood at large)!!!

    Small Tangible Wins: small, frequent, visible projects for big wins

  • !

    !!

    Long-Term Project and Planning:!!

    a) Everyone in the community can participate in their completion

    b) Participants develop pride in permanent projects, which in turn fosters a desire to protect and maintain the space where the project is located

    c) Long term projects provide opportunities for consistent community involvement and programmatic presence

    d) Programmatic presence allows for the maintenance of permanent projects and shows the commitment of the participating parties

  • Partnerships develop out of problem solving

    ! Engaging residents through community initiatives, meetings, events, and on the street!a) Listening to our participants and noting the common threads in their service plans!b) Surveying the community!c) Referencing existing research!d) Common sense! (Some community issues are very visible)!

    Being realistic and acknowledging capacity

    ! Culture of questions! Culture of innovation! Culture of exploration/research! Culture of flexibility and risk! Culture of common sense (some community issues are very visible)!Culture of leveraging and finding resources
