Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Sale sale sale

Sale sale saleArt and Soul, 200 block Pennsylvania Avenue S.E. Washington, DC.

A nice way to use the 3 feet of public space that DC stores are allowed to use in front of their shops without additional permits (unless they are selling), by using an atypical promotional "sign." These types of mannekins aren't cheap, but could be fabricated by a local high school vocational arts program. (Many Main Street programs work with local vocational programs to fabricate the devices used to affix banners to lightpoles.)
