Good stuff here! @ArtInLee this is the approach for your master plan! Well Done!

You did hear about the results of the wide-ranging Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study, right? The Lee County Alliance for the Arts held an unveiling a few months ago. Read the Creative Placemaking article linked in the Americans for the Arts tweet above, and you begin to see the foundation of the Alliance’s Master Plan. It’s bigger than that – although that campus enrichment plan is going to result in a spectacular transformation. We can adopt these “creative placemaking” principles to transform our communities on a macro scale.
Our Jon Romine was on WGCU Public Media’s live call-in talk show Gulf Coast Live yesterday to talk about some of the placemaking aspects represented by the planning process for Gardner’s Park. Give it a listen!
