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.

Promoting walking, New York City street banner

I wish that we would use street banners and other means to promote urban design and active transportation and transit in DC. E.g., in the past I've suggested that the city should develop and erect interpretation signs about the L'Enfant Plan and urban design of the city and neighborhoods.
