Placemaking Section

The Placemaking Section collaborates with communities and government agencies to rethink and rebuild public spaces in Prince George’s County. This work is achieved through:

  • Technical assistance to organizations and agencies developing public spaces;
  • Community outreach to solicit input on public spaces and placemaking in the County; 
  • Evaluation of plans and policies to assess progress towards meeting goals; and
  • Administering initiatives and programs that implement policies in places.

Our work is centered on placemaking, a set of practices that develops public space and a sense of identity in a place. You can learn more about placemaking on our explanatory page.
