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.

Georgetown U Fall 2015 Speaker Series: Creating Creative Cities

This is sponsored by the Georgetown University master degree program in Urban and Regional Planning, which is offered by the School of Continuing Studies.

(The first two programs already have occurred.  I am not sure if they have been videotaped.  The first program, on "It’s There, But Can We See It? Exploring the Contours of Creative Communities," looked particularly interesting.  But I didn't find out about this series til after the first session.)
