The Power of 10+ is a heuristic to help target placemaking activities. It seems to be aimed at more institutional placemakers but after a visit from my family, I've started thinking: what am I doing to add to that list?

Here is one of the sessions I made, specifically to hear Jarrett Walker. Enjoy.
