Great Neighborhood Book
Written by Training Content Coordinator   

"The Great Neighborhood Book by Jay Walljasper, 2007, explains how any community can be improved and enlivened, not by vast infusions of cash, not by government, but by the people who live there. Through real-life stories, this book addresses such challenges as traffic control, crime, comfort and safety, and developing economic vitality.

Offering compelling evidence of how people in communities have enhanced their own neighborhoods through "Placemaking" -- the PPS term for the process of transforming public space -- this exciting guide offers inspiring real-life examples that show the magic that happens when individuals take small steps, and motivate others to make change. It joins The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces and How To Turn a Place Around in the PPS library of publications that explore a place-based approach to improving neighborhoods."

This book is a must-read not only for neighborhood activists and concerned citizens but also for urban planners, developers and policy-makers.
