Placemaking Week Comes to Chattanooga
Making the most out of our public spaces is what Placemaking Week in Chattanooga is all about.
The conference started last night and go until Friday.
More than 400 people are here from around the globe.
There are workshops and tours and speakers all this week.
Placemaking Week happens every two years and this is the third time they've held it.
Chattanooga is the first city in the U.S. to host the week long conference.
"We really knew that Chattanooga had been doing something right with a real sense of community," Juliet Kahne with Project for Public Spaces says. "The city has gone through a lot of change. There is a real sense of culture here, and also a sense of pride. We really felt like Chattanooga had an opportunity to share what's really working with their process."
The conference is led by Project for Public Spaces. It is a non-profit based in New York City.
There are several events you can attend without being a part of the conference.
