Placemaking Wishes for 2013

Like a lot of people, Placeshakers is kicking off the new year with a list: placemaking wishes for 2013. Read on for seven trending ideas they hope break large.

"With the dawning of 2013, the interwebs are awash in lists detailing exactly what to watch out for in the coming year and, in a way, this is one more of those. But not exactly.

The blog goes on to expand on wishes for:

  1. More Options in the Reform of Local Growth Regulations
  2. Incremental Growth
  3. Tactical Urbanism as Normative Citizen Practice
  4. Better Methods for Measuring Livability
  5. Return on Infrastructure Investment
  6. More Streets-for-People, Near and Long-Term
