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.

Oak Park Michigan cites person for front yard vegetable garden

Another example of how the Detroit region is behind the times. See "Oak Park Woman Faces 93-Days in Jail For Planting Vegetable Garden" from WJBK TV. Image from the station.

(For those of us Detroiters old enough to remember Bob McBride, here's the obituary from the Washington Post, "Bob McBride, early D.C. newscaster and former Channel 4 anchor." He was the general manager of WJBK and did on air editorials that always ended with the line "what do you think? I'm Bob McBride." I can't help but think of that when I ask or answer the same question.)
