Did you see the three finalist presentations on developing the actual waterfront? They are AWESOME. Real world, y’all.
Also, I just wanted to update you from the hell that was Studio II.
This summer, I’ll be a fellow with the Westport Community Economic Development Corporation, learning more about land trusts while offering my web design services and non-profit services helping them with their visioning and whatnot. (Lisa Hodges-Hiken is their Exec. Director; she taught my real estate development class!)
This Fall for my second independent study, I’ll be digging into the GIS project with Westport’s Mount Auburn Cemetery, creating a geodatabase and assembling an online archive for a ‘digital museum’ website, to boost it into a proper memorial park with ecological restoration at the forefront (As a followup to our Fall 2018 Studio II work).
During our last studio, we encouraged the cemetery leadership to adapt the grounds maintenance plans to a wider strategic goal to allow the cemetery to be open to the public (in moderation, over time) to better orient with pedestrian and vehicle connectivity to the Middle Branch and the Gwynns Falls.
This Fall, I’ll be better crafting the how-to element as we are aware of the upcoming Middle Branch Waterfront work, the Green Network Plan, the Rails to Trails goal of a full City loop, and the Port Covington-Westport Waterfront work.
Hope you’re having an excellent summer.

A plane passes by, “Stonach keep Preakness in Baltimore.” Somebody paid money for that.

Some quick screenshots from the 2015 master bike plan… food for thought; and some screenshots from my Studio class project connecting the Mt Auburn Cemetery to a wider trail network.
