What makes some public places successful while others struggle? Is it money? Location? Or simply luck? While all of these advantages can play a role, they are only one piece of the puzzle. Successful communities and destinations leverage a strong brand to guide and influence planning initiatives, attract private development, and win public funding to enhance, expand, and evolve their place.
Branding before planning makes it easier to conceive a vision that stakeholders can agree with and advocate for; prioritize recommendations and projects that are authentic and relevant; and thus attract like-minded and aligned investors.
In this webinar, we explain and demonstrate how to use your brand tools and user-centric design strategy to streamline the planning process and get better results.
- Balancing the functional demands of Place with experiential goals.
