Placemaking for public spaces is meant to put people first, every step of the way - from planning and design to building and maintaining those spaces.

James F. Lima will talk about “The Economics of Placemaking” here in Chattanooga - at The Camp House on Thursday, starting at 5:30 PM - for the CIVIQ speaker series hosted by Chattanooga Design Studio.

He is the founder of James Lima Planning + Development, a real estate and economic advisory firm in New York that helps clients in the public and private sectors to “create more vibrant, equitable and resilient places” - including here in the Southeast.

In the past few weeks, we’ve shared parts of our conversation with James - and now, here is our full conversation with him, joined by the Studio's David Chalker.
