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.

DC DPW art sanitation trucks

Granted this is many years after the idea was first pioneered in Philadelphia, and I still think it would be better to use garbage trucks as rolling billboards to promote urban-relevant environmental messages, but it's more attractive, in any case, than a straight up garbage truck.

Just back from a vacation to Vietnam and the trash trucks in Hoi An play ice cream truck music. Very festive!
