The Community Foundation for Mississippi is hosting a Rural Placemaking Summit on August 1st in McComb, MS.  

It is our goal to use the conference to equip rural elected officials and municipal leaders with the tools and resources they need to use placemaking techniques in their communities. 


The conference sessions will include everything from walkability/bike trails to historical preservation/repurposing spaces, building age-friendly & intergenerational communities, examples of successful cross-sector partnerships for placemaking, tourism and public art, placemaking on a budget, and sessions connecting attendees to multiple funding sources for placemaking. 


The audience will be primarily municipal leaders, community and economic development professionals as well as nonprofit organizations, urban planners and anyone looking for affordable techniques to better their communities in MS. It is our goal that each session will offer not just inspiration but tangible, practical application to ensure that leaders implement these changes in their cities and towns. 


MML members will receive 2 CMO credits for attending.
