City Repair offers two great resources to help you reclaim public space and build community!

City Repair’s Placemaking Guidebook

Our best print resource for community-based projects such as Intersection Repair is called the Placemaking Guidebook. It includes physical examples, stories, techniques for community organizing and facilitation, and much more. This Guidebook begins where most American communities find themselves: socially isolated, yet relatively stable. If you are fortunate enough to live in a neighborhood where people are already engaged in community building, then start wherever it makes sense. Keep in mind, however, that even the most socially active neighborhoods include people who feel disempowered and might benefit from the initial steps of the placemaking process. This guide is not a “recipe” for placemaking. These ideas are here for your reference and are meant to be a springboard for your imagination!

Inside:

  • • How to paint an intersection, step-by-step
  • • Detailed methods for communicating with your neighborhood
  • • Sample agendas for meetings
  • • Personal stories
  • • Make your own block party
  • • Resources
