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.

Urban Current blog of the Urban and Regional Policy Programme of the German Marshall Fund of the United States

From email:

The Urban Current is the blog of the German Marshall Fund's Urban and Regional Policy program, which fosters exchange on innovative policy strategies and shared challenges between urban and regional policymakers in the United States and Europe.

It has an international focus. Current pieces are on Lyon, France and branding, Germany's declining rural areas (technically not an urban issue, but inextricably linked), and the state of high speed rail in California.
