Thank you for attending the kick off.



Thank you so much for attending the Knowledge Park Action Plan meeting last evening. Speaking about placemaking, Isn’t the Lowenstein building fabulous! You offered up some great comments. We are excited that you are excited. I have summarized the comments below. Let me know if I forgot anything. It was not easy to hear you. We will be reaching out very shortly with some options for meeting dates and times. Remember the goal is to present on 6/21, five actionable placemaking projects for implementation in Knowledge Park over the next five years. In the meantime, keep your eyes and ears open and your cameras ready to capture some inspiration.

Food for thought: Why did the Southern cities (identified as the top ten in the article I handled out last night) make the list. How can Rock Hill make that list in ten years?

    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.
