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.

Planning healthy places...

The Planning Healthy Places initiative of the Public Health Law and Policy Project has a number of interesting resources, check it out.

From the webpage I also learned about the Healthy Corner Stores Network, which is an initiative designed to help people bring healthier food to the stores already in their communities.
