Placemaking for public spaces is meant to put people first, every step of the way.

From planning and designing public spaces to building and maintaining them, placemaking keeps the focus on the people who use and benefit from those spaces.

James F. Lima will talk about “The Economics of Placemaking” here in Chattanooga - at The Camp House on Thursday, May 4th 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.

We’ll bring you the rest of our conversation with James Lima next week here on “Scenic Roots.” For more on his upcoming CIVIQ talk at The Camp House on Thursday, May 4th, visit the Chattanooga Design Studio at its website: chattanoogastudio.com.
