Public Realm

Public Realm

Focus of council is to enhance the understanding and appreciation of the public realm through the sharing of best practices and lessons learned in the designing, planning, financing and developing of publicly owned and publicly- accessible exterior spaces such as streets, waterfronts, parks, plazas, recreational open spaces, and public and civic landmarks. The goal of discussion and content will be to provide an understanding of best practices and new approaches to planning and designing places where and through which the public connects.
