Placemaking Program Calendar

Community proposals to receive our support for a placemaking project are open through 11:59pm, Thursday, January 10, 2019. We then run a training program between February and May 2019 on Thursday evenings to get folks geared up for their projects. The program is open to communities and organizations in the Portland Metro Area, Gresham, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Oregon City, Milwaukie, and Vancouver. Most projects are implemented during our ten-day event, the Village Building Convergence (VBC), on Friday May 31st to Sunday June 9, 2019. Sometimes, projects extend into the summer, but the last date we support painting projects is on National Night Out, the first Tuesday in August.
