Article: All Placemaking is Creative: How a Shared Focus on Place Builds Vibrant Destinations

The article linked below got me to thinking about our revitalization efforts in Dennisport and all the amazing people I have had the pleasure to work with on getting the village back to where it is today. The original seeds for the success we are beginning to experience dates back to efforts by the earliest Dennisport Revitalization Committee members including Joe Lebel and Cliff Metcalf, whose efforts predate my arrival to more recent Committee Members Don Robitaille, Tom Huettner and Carlyn Carey. The DRC and the Planning Department have worked hard making Dennisport a place where everyone feels ownership of the “place” and feel welcome. We still have lots of ideas, and hope to continue attracting everyone back to Dennisport. —————————————————- All Placemaking is Creative: How a Shared Focus on Place Builds Vibrant Destinations http://www.pps.org/blog/placemaking-as-community-creativity-how-a-shared-focus-on-place-builds-vibrant-destinations/
