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.

This open house format meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to provide input on the Small Area Plan for Walter Reed, such as urban design characteristics (e.g., building form and massing) and land use designations (e.g.., zoning).

District agency staff and project team members will be on hand to answer your questions regarding traffic circulation, connectivity to the surrounding community, sustainability features, historic preservation and the development program.

Your feedback will be considered as the draft Base Reuse Plan is being refined for Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA) approval in late January 2012. The final Base Reuse Plan will be presented at a community meeting on February 2nd.
