    Can you make some cool, green, seating to power-up place-making at the Rail Yards Market? See our request for proposals to do just that...

    Greetings Local Maker!  To power-up our placemaking initiatives, The Rail Yards Market is seeking creative makers to design and construct some mobile seating elements for our Sunday event.

    Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Placemaking capitalizes on a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and well being (definition from wikipedia).

    Right now, we are requesting one design and prototype to be created and beta-tested by each applicant. We are awaiting a possible grant award in late May, and if awarded, a panel will choose our favorite design, and would like to pursue constructing more of the units. Anyone can apply, and we encourage local neighborhood residents to submit design proposals!

    Design proposals are due by April 15th, and should be emailed to RailYardsMarket@gmail.com. Designs should include a sketch or image of idea, and a budget breakdown of how much each unit would cost. 

    Read our full RFP here.
