    LONGWOOD COLLECTIVE PUBLISHES A "PLAYBOOK FOR PLACEMAKING," PROVIDING A MODERN GUIDE FOR ACTIVATING SPACES FOR PUBLIC GOOD

    We are excited to announce the release of our latest white paper from our Area Planning and Development team, the Playbook for Placemaking in a Medical and Academic District. This white paper offers key lessons and best practices from the experience of our Outside// program, which brings live music performances, food trucks, art installations, book and game carts, dog petting, outdoor furniture, and other free, publicly accessible amenities to the LMA. The Playbook cites how a key ingredient to a successful placemaking program is partnership and co-creating a vision with stakeholder support.

    With this Playbook, we hope to share our experiences with others and inspire other communities. Visit longwoodcollective.org/publications to read the full Playbook.
