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.

I learned a new word: windrow

Windrows are the piles of snow that are left in driveways and crosswalks by snow plows removing snow from the street. In some places, including some suburban areas of Toronto, special equipment comes through to remove these snow leftovers from driveways (and hopefully from crosswalks). See "Kill windrow clearing, save $3.7 million" from the Toronto Star.
