Panel: Funding the Future of Placemaking

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You have a great placemaking idea, but how will you pay for it?

Placemaking projects can help transform parks, squares, streets, waterfronts and so many other places, but these projects cannot get off the ground without covering capital costs, and cannot sustain themselves without an operating budget.

Join a panel of experts to learn how you can use strategies like value-capture mechanisms, philanthropic and corporate giving, and crowdfunding to make your placemaking dreams come true!
