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.

Update on pedestrian scramble intersection at 7th and H Streets NW

I wrote most recently about this intersection here ("Crosswalk treatments") commenting that while not finished, the city seems to be upgrading the design treatment of this pedestrian scramble intersection so that it is much clearer visually for both pedestrians--it's now very clear that people can walk diagonally across the intersection--and motor vehicle operators.

This photo shows that they are three-quarters of the way done with the treatment.
