Thanks! I wish that I had more time to dedicate to writing about the things I see and wonder about. I definitely believe in civic/community engagement and that takes up a good chunk of my time outside of my professional role in planning. I think about public space quite a bit and one of the things I am working on personally is gardening as traffic calming/placemaking and I am starting at home by creating gateways into the neighborhood that are decoratively landscaped. The grass around sign posts is being turned into perennial flower beds to soften the lines between mono-culture grass and the sharp steel sign posts and telephone poles. I know it is a little thing, but I think details are important. Besides, who doesn’t like flowers?
