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.

When fixed rail transit isn't a possibility any time soon, then yes, bus rapid transit is worth looking at

in Richmond, Virginia, and other places. See "GRTC eyes upgraded bus transit system used in Ohio" from the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The next time I'm in Cleveland I will try to check out their BRT system.
