Downtowns

The public realm, which is essentially the ground floor of a city, is how people experience their community. Placemaking builds on this experience by starting from the premise that successful downtowns are made up of lively and distinctive destinations, or places, where the many functions of community life take place, and where people feel a sense of ownership and connectedness.

Destinations can be located along commercial and residential streets, within parks and squares, along waterfronts, or in plazas around civic buildings and cultural institutions.  Equally important is how these destinations connect with and support one another and how to avoid having them function in isolation outside the downtown core.
