Readers , Family and Friends:
As I wrote a few weeks ago, I want to expand the reach of this site. I believe there are many voices in placemaking, community development and cultural awarness that need to be heard together. The recent neighborhood shooting in Florida and the rising gas prices make this type of commentary even more vital to everyday Americans.
I hope to use funding provided by the Knight News Challenge to bring all online voices engaged in placemaking side by side with voices who empower various cultures and demographic groups. My vision is taking all of our work and creating a Huffington Post for placemaking that considers both the technological and sociological sides of placemaking. All I need you to do is the following to support this vision:
