Placemaking is the philosophy and method at the heart of Broadway Square’s mission, voice and leadership approach to managing our community square.


The placemaking approach is a collaborative, inclusive and evolving process that strives to develop an active, vibrant space for the members of a community to gather together in safely, engaging with each other and strengthening connections. It focuses on the relationships between people and the places they share while paying particular attention to the physical, cultural and social identities that define a place and support its ongoing evolution. Placemaking embraces and fosters everything that makes a space unique and communally valued.

“Placemaking shows people just how powerful their collective vision can be. It helps them to re-imagine everyday spaces, and to see anew the potential of parks, downtowns, waterfronts, plazas, neighborhoods, streets, markets, campuses and public buildings,” claims the Project for Public Spaces.

Broadway Square aims to enrich our community through the creation of a quality public space that contributes to people’s health, happiness and well-being. We feel that the inclusion, empathy, respect and authentic representation fostered by placemaking are critical to the development of happy, healthy and heard individuals able and willing to contribute to a stronger, richer community network. We will do this by creating inspirational programming, equitable experiences and lasting memories for all our community members.
