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.

Capitol Hill Restoration Society, (Old) House Expo, Sunday October 16th

(I heard about this via a side conversation at a meeting last night. It's something I've recommended preservation groups do for years and years. Years ago we went to one in Philadelphia, sponsored by their local preservation organization. The Historic Chicago Bungalow Association has similar kinds of events, but I've never been fortunate enough to attend.  There are also for-profit )
