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.

A parade "float" I wish I'd have come up with... Citizens for Larger Parking Spaces

From a Fourth of July somewhere, likely in Ohio.  From email.

While trying to find the original source of this image, I found a similar parody group in Minnesota, Citizens for Roads, Asphalt and Parking.

Reminds me of Berkeley's (CA) "How Berkeley Can You Be?" parade and celebration. People come up the most absurd niche groups and pet causes. There's also a lot of nudity. Naturally.

"Berserkeley" -- no place on earth like it.

Parody? Parking is serious business. Those of us at CRAP are fighting for freedom.

There's also our brothers and sisters in asphalt over at Michigan Needs More Parking:

Thanks for the heads up.

Have you thought about doing an event on Park(ing) Day?

Oh, and speaking of roads, have been meaning to put this up for a while now...
