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.

Everyone has a reason (not usually a good one) to justify why they deserve special treatment

Just like I didn't see a reason to exclude the sales of nonprofit performances (such as at a nonprofit theater) from admissions sales taxes--after all, these groups get monies from the city and these monies need to be replenished--I see no reason for food trucks to be exempt from DC food sales taxes. See "Food trucks may lose their sales tax exemption" and "D.C. food truck owners object to sales-tax proposal" from the Washington Post.
I Love Food Trucks!
