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.

Who needs an art car when you can make over your entire house?

Alternate title: Who Needs Zoning When a Neighbor Can Put Up a Junkyard Anyway and Just Call It "Art".
Ugh.

... and that part of the city isn't in the "Gateway Arts District."

good to know about your blog. Could you give me the address of the house? Looks great, I'd like to drive by. Judith Johnson

don't remember exactly. It's east of Queens Chapel Road. Maybe Oliver, or one of those other streets (Nicholson, etc.). It shouldn't be too hard to find.

It's not as far north as Queensbury.
