Notable Quotable: Creative Placemaking edition

"Creative placemaking for us---a small town on a state highway that's the main street---is really about economic development and about triggering a response in those traveling through the city of, 'Hey, there's something going on here and we should stop to explore it.'" --- Douglas Self, Planning Administrator, City of Driggs, Idaho

Save the Date! We're announcing our new round of NEA Our Town grants to support creative placemaking projects on Wednesday, July 17.
