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.

The Washington Post editorial page comes around

From time to time I notice that the Washington Post editorial page comes around to my considered judgement (on issues such as WMATA and safety, etc.) even if it takes them awhile. Today's editorial, calling for professional and objective development review in Prince George's County, is another example.

I had been critical in various blog entries (and emails to Post journalists) about their coverage of the issue. I can't claim any of it made any impact, but the editorial, "An invitation to influence peddling in Prince George's" is nice to see, regardless.
