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.

Some funny messages: Woodstock (VT) Home and Hardware

See "Orgill grows on Woodstock: Woodstock Home & Hardware stocks its shelves with a bold promise" from Home Channel News.

Retailers are often advised by commercial district revitalization consultants to not be too distinct especially out there with "political" messages, because such messages are likely to rile at least part of your customer base. These are funny nonetheless. (And I didn't include one that might rile part of the readership.)
