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.

Denver Post series on Colorado's "mental health care" crisis

A four-part series, it looks at availability of care, homelessness, and mentally ill children.

It's particularly apt given the recently released report on Adam Lonza, the Newton, Connecticut killer, and how one evaluation by a clinic affiliated with Yale University made a variety of recommendations that were ignored by both Nancy Lonza and the local school system, which probably accentuated his problems ("Adam Lanza's Mental Problems "Completely Untreated" Before Newtown Shootings, Report Says," New York Times).
