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.

DC Water Authority good idea: free water bottle refills

DC Water and Sewer Authority which as rebranded itself as DC Water with a pretty good brand-logo (press release), has worked it out with a variety of stores and restaurants that people can go in and fill their water bottles for free, rather than (1) buy water and (2) get a bottle with purchased water that is likely to not be recycled.

Pretty cool.
