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.

People gathered for a rally at Milwaukee's City Hall on Monday in support of high-speed rail. On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced it would pull nearly all of the $810 million in stimulus cash awarded to Wisconsin for a 110-mph line linking Milwaukee and Madison because Governor-elect Scott Walker had vowed to kill the project.
