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.

Seasons greetings on the sidewalk

This reminds me of an impromptu public art project by Penn Station in Baltimore that I am not sure I ever got around to blogging about. It was just vinyl letters with sayings related to time and commuting, laid out along the bridge and walkway on St. Paul Street.

Although the lettering wasn't so durable.
