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.

November 5th is #lovelocalsf (San Francisco) Day

The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper has partnered with the Mayor's Office to sponsor "the first ever city-wide celebration of San Francisco on #LoveLocalSF day, November 5, 2014!"

 According to the website:
#LoveLocalSF is a city-wide celebration of San Francisco on Wednesday, November 5, 2014. This will be a day to honor all of the things that make our great city so unique -- be it our diverse communities, our eclectic history, our trendsetting nature or our commitment to innovation. Everyone is invited to show their San Francisco pride through events, art, music, special promotions, parties, and, of course, by wearing our signature color, red.

SFGate is helping to organize this citywide celebration, which includes over 120 businesses and organizations. Non-profits like 826 Valencia and SF-Marin Food Bank, renowned restaurants like State Bird Provisions, iconic shops like Goorin Bros., cultural institutions like the SF Zoo and SFJAZZ and many, many more will all be taking part in this special day.

YOU'RE INVITED to the GRAND FINALE celebration of SF at the Presidio Main Lawn on November 5th from 6 - 8 PM. Join us for live entertainment, music, food and drink provided by Off The Grid and many more fun surprises!
