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 Super NoVa region includes the northern part of Virginia as well as the District of Columbia and parts of Maryland and West Virginia. The plan’s recommendations are based on public and stakeholder input and extensive evaluation of future population and employment trends, land use, and travel demand.

Citizens are invited to attend a public meeting at the following locations. A presentation of the recommendations will be available on the study website, SuperNoVA Transit Vision on September 18, 2012:
