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.

Bicycle hook on Portland Light Rail

This isn't my photo. I guess I deleted the one I took in Portland. It's by Tim Hughes, from the Cycle network and route planning guide. But hooks like this could be put on railroad cars, rather than the elaborate car recently introduced by the MBTA in Boston. This strikes me as more appropriate, less intrusive technology. And a lot less expensive to boot.
