Town Center Placemaking Playbook
Placemaking refers to a collaborative process focused on activities, events and temporary installations that support civic engagement and boost business activity in an area - our goal is to bring our community together in fun & meaningful ways. 

The Economic Development Office was awarded a Massachusetts Downtown Initiative Award for $25,000 to create a "placemaking playbook" for the Town Center business district.  We contracted with Emily Innes of Innes Designs to conduct the analysis and outline ideas appropriate for our Town Center.

A community and business survey was conducted December 2020 - January 2021 with over 520 respondents. 

The final presentation was held on April 28, 2021
