The Place Matters Toolkit is a guidebook to help you identify, promote, and protect places that you care about. We expect the Toolkit to evolve as we develop and post new material. Let us know if you have ideas for new topics, or if a topic covered here requires more explanation.

This Toolkit was made possible with support from the J.M. Kaplan Fund and the New York Community Trust.

Place Matters staff also are available to lead workshops and talks in community and classroom settings. Contact Marci Reaven at
