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 National Capital Planning Commission, in coordination with other federal agencies and the District of Columbia, invites you to attend a public meeting on the Southwest Ecodistrict Initiative -- focused on the 10th Street (L'Enfant Promenade) and Maryland Avenue corridors in Southwest Washington. This joint effort aims to advance the vision set forth in the Monumental Core Framework Plan by fostering an inviting, lively, mixed-use community, while accommodating the future needs of the federal and local governments. The initiative also supports President Obama’s Executive Order 13514 that calls on federal agencies to be leaders in environmental, energy, and economic performance.

Join the Conversation. Help shape this important area into a physical showcase of sustainable practices.

Come Prepared to Share Your Input. Project hand-outs will be available on NCPC’s Southwest Ecodistrict website on February 10, 2011.

RSVP preferred: swecodistrict@ncpc.gov
