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.

Special intersection treatment: Georgia and Kansas Avenues intersection

Unlike the intersection at 7th and H Streets NW, this is not a "Barnes Dance" intersection where there is a cycle that is all walk from all directions including diagonally. 

But this intersection now has a special street treatment and the 7th and H Street intersection does not.  In fact, at 7th and H, the slight lanes painted near the curb to show the diagonal directions are fading.

The city needs to look at 7th and H and make the decision to either dedicate more resources to make sure it absolutely works, or give up on it. Unfortunately, like many things, where they are now is an example of "half-assing" it.
