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.

The Ford's Theatre, a landmark and tourist destination in DC because it is where President Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Booth, is opening a museum and educational facility across the street. The facility will be open for free as part of an open house on February 20th, which is Presidents Day, and will be open to the public with an admission charge starting on February 21st.
