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.

An illustration of the need for various types of bicycle parking

Bicycle parking is not just providing an outside rack. There are many different dimensions, such as short term vs. long term, protected vs. unprotected, outdoor vs. indoor, secure, parking for employees vs. parking for customers, long term parking for residents, etc.

Many zoning requirements don't adequately address the differences.

This was at the Library of Congress.
