Place Matters: The Role of Placemaking in Economic Development
Author: Clark Welch and Louise Anderson

Placemaking is a community and economic development strategy that seeks to use local assets to create appealing and unique places where people want to live, work, and play. For communities that have transitioned from economies centered around commodities and natural resources to economies centered on knowledge, quality of place has become a key differentiator in being able to recruit and retain talent. EDRP's new research examines how economic development benefits from placemaking and provides examples of transformational projects that range from single buildings to neighborhoods and regions.
