Placemaking involves intentionally altering space to engage and improve a community. Increasingly, creative placemaking is being used in cities along with strategic public and private partnerships to promote public safety, entrepreneurship, and the use of underutilized spaces in novel ways.

3rd Street Alley Project

This project aims to re-purpose the 3rd Street Alley (300 block between 3rd and 4th Streets SW) in Downtown Rochester by integrating art and design installations into the space. Activating and beautifying underutilized public spaces like alleys integrates exciting and healthy public spaces into our existing urban environments.
