Competition Addresses the Design Challenges of Placemaking in Rural Communities

In its annual competitive funding effort, the Citizens' Institute on Rural Design (CIRD) has selected four small towns and rural communities to host a two-and-a-half day rural design technical workshop.

CIRD's website details the competition and the selected hosts of the design workshops, each of which provides a compelling scenario to challenge creative placemakers in rural design.

The workshop hosts are:

  • Carl Small Town Center: Houston Community, Mississippi
  • Oregon County Food Producers and Artisans Co-Op: Oregon County, Missouri
  • Lincoln and Lancaster County Planning Department: Lancaster County, Nebraska
  • University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension (UNHCE): Franklin, New Hampshire

The website, and a related press release [PDF], provide more details about each of the design scenarios.
