Place Design creates economic prosperity when people and businesses are attracted to public assets. Entrepreneurs find inspiration in communities with a strong sense of place. Consumers like to spend time in communities and at businesses with unique character. When given a choice, people choose to live in communities that appeal to them. Employers and investors move to these communities because smart people are doing innovative things in communities where they are inspired.
The concept of Place is easy to understand when one reflects on places like Venice, Paris or San Francisco. We have a visceral sense of the public character of these places. It doesn’t need to be explained. Place Design, however, is about more than exciting downtowns and green space. Place Design involves any public good that is more attractive to people, that causes them to live, invest and spend time in a community. In this light, internet speed is a Place Design tool.
