Where Are Our Woonerfs?


street signDescribed as an exploration of “new ways of thinking in the community design process,” the 2nd of 3 ‘Placemaking‘ meetings will be held at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Monday, 2007/11/26) in Council chambers.

Having been fortunate enough to attend a similar presentation by Mr. John Fleming (Mgr. Planning & Development; City of London) at the White Oaks Community Centre last year, I unreservedly recommend that you consider attending this.

    Thanks for adding my blog entry to the list.

    I wish my town (in central New Jersey) had a Placemaking meeting.

    Best wishes,
