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.

Looks like the Land and Water Conservation Fund is likely to be reauthorized, on a permanent basis

While the LWCF is known for land purchases and related improvements for large parks and forests, it also funds urban projects like playgrounds as well as shared use paths for cyclists, pedestrians, and sometimes equestrian uses.

The Denver Post reports that Colorado Senator Cory Gardner has been key to getting the bill towards passage ("Cory Gardner shepherds massive public lands bill toward vote, but Michael Bennet wants more for Colorado").

Each day the fund is not reauthorized costs $2.4 million in foregone revenue, which comes from offshore oil royalties.
