Placemaking: Creating value through sustainable urban planning

Blogger/author Frank Chimero famously stated in a discussion on effective design that "people ignore design that ignores people...".

Approaching urban planning and design from a more equitable approach that honors the social, environmental and economic impact of development is at the heart of true placemaking. Has urban planning changed over the past five to ten years? Who are the champions in the greater Akron area applying new practices to urban planning and redevelopment? What projects are being implemented that demonstrate first-hand how sustainability can be woven throughout the DNA of the work without compromising the original vision? Learn first hand at E4S Akron's monthly Second Wednesday program.

Presentations By:

Todd Ederer - Architect and Partner in Canal Town Builders,?presenting the Hickory Development story
