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.

Montgomery County Parks Speaker Series: "Operational Sustainability: Best Practices in Public Space Management”, November 6th

"Operational Sustainability:
Best Practices in Public Space Management”
November 6, 2019 | 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Montgomery County Regional Office Building Auditorium
8787 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910

Vibrant parks and public spaces that offer more and more amenities are on the rise, but operations funding has not kept up. 

Accommodating visitors, their needs and special events while balancing the needs of landscapes can be challenging.

Tim Marshall, a leader in public space management, will explain the variables in design quality, programming, facilities and maintenance that can achieve “operational sustainability” and lead a public space to flourish and rise above the rest.

Presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
Register by November 1 to secure a complimentary boxed lunch.
