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.

Seattle to install on-street bicycle parking lots in neighborhoods

Why should automobile owners be exclusively privileged with parking access on the public space of the city's streets?

From the blog entry "Capitol Hill getting first bicycle parking" from the Capitol Hill Blog, Seattle:

Taking the place of one to two motor vehicle parking spaces, on-street bike parking will be filled with bicycle racks and surrounded by a raised curb. Bicyclists can enter the parking area from the sidewalk and each car-sized space will accommodate up to eight bikes.

They will be testing this in 3 locations.
