Happy Fall!
We’ve been busy in the past year. 

Let’s catch you up!
In the Past Year
Open to the Public: Rethinking Security & Access in Public Space
On September 24 Susan Silberberg spoke on a panel hosted by the National Capital Planning Commission and the American Society of Landscape Architects in Washington D.C. The discussion addressed vulnerabilities to our public spaces and the fresh look cities must take to ensure their parks, plazas, and squares remain safe and enjoyable.

Climate Ready South Boston
As lead for community engagement, CivicMoxie worked with the Arcadis team and in close collaboration with our client, the Environment Department of the City of Boston, to create a roadmap for addressing climate change and sea level rise in South Boston. Our engagement methods included two community open houses with interactive input stations and extensive focus groups that focused on policy, funding, and neighborhood interests that brought together local leaders, city officials, state policymakers, businesses, and nonprofits.

From the Writing Desk

Think you want to Undertake an Arts and Cultural Master Plan?

One of CivicMoxie’s core areas of work is arts and cultural planning. In the past few years, we have noticed increased interest among cities, towns, and nonprofits wishing to undertake arts and cultural planning. During conversations with these constituents, a number of questions have come up that lead us to believe that a series of articles on what we have learned about cultural planning may be useful. The first addresses 10 questions to ask before initiating the cultural planning process.
Projects in Action
Atlanta Regional Commission

CivicMoxie led the Arts, Culture, & Creative Placemaking Plan for the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), which was approved by the board in February. Already, the ARC has begun moving forward with recommendations, including increasing its capacity in this realm by hiring an additional staff member!
Old Saybrook 

CivicMoxie and the Town of Old Saybrook completed the Mariner’s Way Discovery + Action Plan in December 2017.  At the Town of Old Saybrook’s January 22, 2019 Town Meeting, the Mariner’s Way Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District was approved as a means to encourage revitalization of properties along the Mariner’s Way corridor.
