Share Your Placemaking Ideas and Experiences

Placemaking is a collaborative process and the same is true of the contents of this website. Do you have an experience or idea to share related to placemaking within your community? If so, we’d like to hear from you.

Soup Initiative Flyer-300pxJonesville SOUP On Thursday, May 2, Jonesville High School students will get a chance to pitch their best and brightest ideas to a group of community “investors” at the first-ever Jonesville SOUP, to be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Jonesville High School cafeteria.The grassroots fundraising concept is a simple one, based on the original Detroit SOUP. The Jonesville version will ask community members to contribute a small donation to share a simple meal while listening to local high school students pitch ideas for small community-based entrepreneurial projects. At the end of the evening, everyone votes on their favorite project, with the winning student group receiving $500 to launch their dream.
