KAPOW! Making spaces into lively places
January 5, 2015
With the help of local partners, Sustainable Connections is hosting a Placemaking Competition to transform underutilized spots in Downtown Bellingham with YOUR idea for a lively destination that builds a stronger, healthier community. We are asking you to design a “tactical urbanism” project that enhances our Downtown vitality.
The goal of the competition is to engage our community in designing inexpensive, individual projects that make small places more lively and enjoyable. These design ideas should help to reflect our unique community identity, attract people, activate inactive spaces, provide amenities and promote people’s health, happiness, and well-being. Winning ideas will be selected based on their creativity, innovation, potential to be realized and social impact.
