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.

My realtor, when we were looking after thanksgiving, went off for about 5 minutes on how SOMEONE had put up an inflatable Santa and it was ruining the street.

She lived in Glover Park somehere.

The GF and I gave a horried, worried smile and I'm now dreaming of my own inflatable santa. Or something far more offensive..wboy.

there was a house behind us that had a musical thing and blue lights that glowed all night.

A house next door to that had an LED set up that was pretty wild. Suzanne has a video of it...

I like Christmas lights and even reindeer, Santas, etc.

We have a huge evergreen tree in our front yard, at least 60 feet tall, and were I to win the lottery, I'd deck it out with a full light set up.

we need more tolerance for self expression in our culture- this includes more public art and less of a puritanical mentality when people do things like this that are basically harmless and temporary.
