Community Tool Kit

PBOT’s Portland in the Streets team has temporarily paused our programs in response to our current Covid-19 public health crisis. We remain committed to all the ways we use our public space for community building and connection, even if we can’t do what we normally do.


Welcome to the Portland in the Streets Community Toolkit

Use this page as a guide for your placemaking project. We list granting resources, how-to's, and placemaking case studies.

The goal is to encourage Portland residents to energize and beautify their neighborhoods.
We hope that you will find the resources found here to be useful.
