With past projects, such as POPUP15, Fair @ 44, and Take Back The Alley, The Boulevard has a history of implementing Placemaking projects. We have been working with the City of San Diego to adopt a formal process to implement these projects and that day has finally arrived.
Placemaking allows residents to reimagine and creatively reinvent unused or underutilized spaces in their neighborhoods to cultivate a sense of community. The distinctive character and heart of San Diego’s neighborhoods emerge through citizen-driven placemaking projects that, for example, create gathering places, showcase public art, illuminate landscape, beautify forgotten parcels or illustrate the area’s cultural vibe. Placemaking projects are temporary small-scale developments in the public right-of-way and on private property.
