Morgan Hill Placemaking  / JLJA worked with the city and community of Morgan Hill to create a vibrant, energized, engaging, and innovative placemaking concept. Intended to guide phased downtown development and build civic pride, JLJA framed the concept as 'Healthy Living Morgan Hill' and prioritized clear and articulate suggestions to promote walking, bicycling, family play, gathering, and dining. JLJA developed a new vocabulary of site features and amenities that bridged the history and future of this developing community, promoting sustainability for current and future generations. The concept introduced interactive public art, spaces for all ages to play, wired spaces to meet new technology demands, simple retrofits for artful site furnishings, state-of-the-art energy efficient lighting to enhance Morgan Hill's night-time vibe, and bike- and pedestrian-friendly paths and gathering areas – all elements to generate excitement and engagement for Morgan Hill residents and visitors.
