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.

ULI Baltimore Transit oriented development conference next week (Wednesday Feb. 13)

From email. The line up looks pretty good. Of course, I would always raise the issue that you need a robust transit network in order to get the kinds of property and building values that you need to financially justify land use intensification of the TOD sort. See past blog entries:

-- "What matters isn't "transit oriented development": what really matters is compact development and integrating transportation and land use"
-- "What the State of Maryland still doesn't get about smart growth"
-- "From the files: transit planning in Baltimore County"
-- "With "transit-oriented development" urban design and/or planning is destiny"
-- "Tips for urban revitalization, including transit"
