NEXT STEPS

Stages The following stages describe how a “My City” process could compliment your city’s official planning process. Details can be found in the Overview, Projects and Events chapters. STAGE 1: A Side-Show Presentation Pilot project, small gatherings and “sideshow” presentations within a larger existing community event helps to introduce “My City” and a pilot project in your community. STAGE 2: A Moving Pop-Up Exhibit. A movable exhibit that visits schools, libraries and local public venues could then be a second stage that helps a “My City” organization to gain momentum locally. STAGE 3: “My City” in a Temporary Space Unleased storefronts could be used before shifting into a more permanent space. The interactive, participatory aspects of “My City” can also bring life to vacant storefronts and streetscapes. STAGE 4: The Permanent Planitorium What libraries and schools do for reading and educating, “My City” does for planning. Like building a library, creating a Planitorium is a long term project that pays rich dividends through the century that follows.

SIDE-SHOW

1-DAY 1. A “side-show” exhibit to a larger event.

POP-UP

WEEKS 2. A Pop-Up Space: From a weekend to a year.

TEMPORARY

MONTHS 3. In 1916 the Board of Trade shared its space.

PLANITORIUM

PERMENANT 4. A Planitorium

AT ANY STAGE: OPTIONAL INTEGRATION OF “MY CITY” OUTPUT INTO THE OFFICIAL MUNICIPAL PROCESS The objective of the “My City” process is to create greater momentum for the early visioning stages of planning and a stronger link to the later logistical stages of the city’s official process. As the city acquaints itself with what “My City” can produce, it may choose to incorporate its process and adopt a more formal relationship.
