Placemaking Research Opportunities


Edited: Feb 6, 2018


What are some other communities that have transformed themselves in the past few years? Are these places we can visit, or can we invite someone to come to Rock Hill and give us insight/answer our questions? Do they have strategies or programs that we could use in Rock Hill, too?


List your thoughts & ideas below! Feel free to include links, images, or videos that help tell the story.

    On March 14th, Project for Public Spaces (PPS) hosted a 2 day workshop in the Gettys Courtroom, where RHEDC, community members, Placemaking team members, and city staff came together to identify placemaking opportunities in Knowledge Park. We participated in several group exercises, did a walking tour of downtown, and created concept placemaking maps for 5 specific locations. PPS then created a Placemaking Master Plan in the following weeks, designed to activate underutilized spaces in Knowledge Park that will attract knowledge workers, businesses, residents, and visitors.

    I ran across this over the weekend - while this particular initiative is to increase diversity in the food industry, I thought the concept was pretty cool and perhaps even doable in Rock Hill.
