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.

Buying fruit...

What if you wanted an apple or banana and there isn't a grocery store around? Many convenience stores sell fruit. CVS doesn't. In Merchants Square in Colonial Williamsburg, you have some upscale gourmet food shops but they don't sell fruit. There is a WaWa a couple blocks away.

Just as Home Depot sells soda and snacks in aisle caps by the registers, there are probably other products other stores can sell pretty easily, if they would only offer the items for sale.
