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.

(DC) The Federal Urban Design Workshop, Tomorrow

From the National Capital Planning Commission:

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 6:30 – 8:00 PM
@ National Capital Planning Commission, 401 9th Street NW, Suite 500 North, DC
- More about NCPC's Federal Urban Design Initiative available online

HELP WANTED: Urban design involves the enhancement of a place’s unique urban character through the development and management of its public spaces, including building yards, parks, plazas, and streets. The National Capital Planning Commission is developing a new urban design element for the Federal Elements of the Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital that will establish policies designed to make federal public spaces, campuses, and buildings more livable, functional, and sustainable, and we'd like your help.

Help plan for the future by joining us for the Federal Urban Design workshop. We want your ideas for how federal facilities and property can create better public space within Washington, DC and throughout the National Capital Region.
