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.

Idaho Press-Tribune series on public transit

Nampa, Idaho is 22 miles from Boise.  The two cities are the largest in Idaho and are in the same metropolitan area.  Boise is the state capital and home to Boise State University.  The Idaho Press-Tribune is the primary newspaper in Nampa, while the Idaho Press-Statesman is the paper in Boise.

The Nampa paper is running a series on the state of public transit in the Boise metropolitan area.

Today's article, "Other metro areas in our region have invested heavily in public transportation," looks at other comparably sized cities in the Intermountain region and the state of transit in those places.
