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.

Engaging "local" businesses in neighborhood cleanliness

Tommy Hilfiger and CleanlinessTrash can in SoHo, Manhattan.

While I think that dealing with merchants takes a lot of time and energy and can be infinitely frustrating, we do have opportunities to better engage them and provide "naming opportunities." (Of course, I've been cut off on my bike by a truck with a "I'd rather be biking" bumper sticker.)
