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 new word to me: "renoviction" but it was coined in 2008

-- "“Renoviction” – A new word for an old scam," Renters at Risk Campaign

(I came across the word used in an article in Toronto's free weekly, Now Magazine.)

When people are evicted because a housing unit is going to be renovated.
