Is ‘Sustainable’ Urban Placemaking Elitist?  Written by Dean Saitta posted on Intercultural Urbanism November 12, 2013

“For whom are we trying to create benefit when implementing our creative placemaking strategies?…Which people do we want to gather, visit, and live in vibrant places?  Is it just some people?   Is it already well-off people?   Is it traditionally excluded people? Is it poor people? New people? People of color? ….We need to create an explicit pro-equity agenda to our creative placemaking efforts, be explicit about who benefits from the beginning, put it in our logical models and include it in our measurement.” —Neeraj Mehta
