Reimagining the Civic Commons’ Measure What Matters: DIY Toolkit

This DIY toolkit from Reimagining the Civic Commons and Interface Studio includes an Observation Map and a Site Intercept Survey to help neighbors capture and quantify the beneficial impact of public places such as parks, libraries, community centers and trails in their community.

The resources guide the collection of data through observation and interviews with community members about their perceptions of a particular space, demographic data and how the space impacts the surrounding community.

Reimagining the Civic Commons is supported by The JPB Foundation, Knight Foundation, The Kresge Foundation and The Rockefeller Foundation.
