ABAG's Placemaking Project

The Urban Studies Program and Dr. Ayse Pamuk's USP 680 course played a vital role in the Placemaking Project commissioned by the Association of Bay Area Government’s (ABAG). Dr. Pamuk's students spent an entire semester researching people's experience of places and how places can be designed to attract residents and create thriving communities.  Please visit ABAG's website to view the Placemaking report based on this effort. After the presentation by Dr.  Pamuk's student and submission of their project, ABAG’s Executive Board approved the inclusion of the Placemaking lens in the understanding of Priority Development Areas for Plan Bay Area 2040, their next round of the Sustainable Communities Strategy.  Congratulations to Dr. Pamuk and her students for a successfully project of civic engagement that epitomizes the work of all PACE faculty.
