Design Your Own Downtown

Posted: Updated:

A website called Aday Remus is crowd sourcing ideas for all downtown redevelopment.

The project, started in Rock Hill, wants to engage people around the country in their Main Street projects by allowing them to skip the city council meetings and go straight to the web.

“Aday Remus is the ability to find a building in your community and put forward an idea for the use of that space,” said President Jason Broadwater.

The sites creators teamed up with students at Winthrop University to make a space where anyone, anywhere can design their own community and then allow other people to comment or get involved.

“It makes our jobs easier,” said Rock Hill Economic Development Director Stephen Turner. “It gives us a new way of…obtaining ideas from people.”

Here’s how it works: if you have an idea for a building in your town, you visit the site and describe your plan with words or pictures. You then attach the plan to the actual building to see what it would look like.

“It’s supposed to be for anyone who wants to contribute ideas,” said Broadwater.
