Connecting the Dots Between Governance and Placemaking
Jessica A. Lee interviews John Turnbull, director of asset management at the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority, about how governance practices enable the many successes of Seattle's Pike Place.
According to the introduction to the Q&A, "Pike Place Market in Seattle is a leading example of how intentional governance can help vibrant urban spaces reach their potential as platforms for innovation."
Among the observations made by Turnbull in the interview are insights into how Pike Place fits into the evolving milieu of Seattle and how the sausage gets made (so to speak) in running the organization behind the place.
