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.

Trail (shared use path) courtesy tips

For Norm File2473

This is from Victoria BC from John Luton's Flickr stream. It bugs me to no end that there aren't "rules/etiquette" signs posted on DC's Metropolitan Branch Trail. Uniformly I have found that bicyclists ride to the right. But pedestrians are all over the trail, either walking in the direction of traffic or against it.

But since etiquette signs aren't posted, why should we be surprised?

(Otherwise, I love the trail--other than the lack of adequate signage generally.)
