Mexican city puts “Placemaking” at the heart of post-pandemic recovery

My list


Officials at this northern Mexican city are betting that a series of short-term, low-cost, and agile initiatives will create friendly and safe public spaces for people and cyclists, improving pedestrian infrastructure.

The “Placemaking Plan SNG2030” project is supported by UN-Habitat and the city of San Nicolas de los Garza –thus the abbreviation for the project name – and the technical assistance of the Placemaking Foundation. The project proposes new ways of managing, designing, and inhabiting the public space through their renovation, actions that the city has identified as a central element of the post-pandemic recovery.

Placemaking, or tactical urbanism, is a way to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces.
