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 bicycle route sign on the Metropolitan Branch Trail shows Key West as a destination

I am willing to ride 5-10 miles for meetings and such, but I am not a recreational biker for most part. I definitely won't be riding to Key West.

However, we had a presentation in Indianapolis earlier this week and we took our bikes and once we got there--we didn't drive--we biked to all our meetings and around downtown.

It was liberating and great to ride after being holed up in the room working on documents, the presentation, etc.
