The Advancing Communities Show: Placemaking for Pets


This episode features Aaron Domini, Senior Planner at OHM Advisors.

We explore why planners, city leaders, and the private sector might want to consider Fido, the family dog, when creating the next great spaces. As part of our discussion, Aaron talks about the influence of pets in shaping lifestyles, pet-friendly design, and planning practices, and the potential economic and social value of integrating pets and their owners, who now make up a whopping 40% of the population, into plans for communities of the future.

Join us as we discuss reactions from communities, the private sector, and what’s next around this idea of placemaking for pets.
