PUBLIC SPACE & FUNDING
- The sustainability and the quality of public spaces depend on the resources allocated at the local level to the creation, the management and the maintenance of public spaces.
- A local government is the public sphere in charge of allocating resources to public space development and maintenance. As such, part of its municipal budget should be for public space or other innovative funding sources should be sought. Local income, in the form of taxes, comes from increased property value or locally generated revenue.
