What if we intentionally used perpendicular #urbandevelopment tactics to repair the fabric between major city streets? http://gudthoughts.com/perpendicular-urban-development/

We love #neighborhoodgardens  - especially in #kansascity   :)

Kansas City's historic Manheim Park neighborhood has reached out to +Make It Right and local environmental design innovators BNIM to recreate the neighborhood by preserving the character that it once had. Collaboration between the neighborhood and the developers to restore ties between local longtime residents and and the surrounding communities.

This ambitious project in Kansas City, Missouri includes three main parts: the preservation and rehabilitation of the existing Bancroft School, site improvements to accommodate new community spaces and parking needs, and construction of new housing units in the Historic Manheim Park neighborhood.

A little about what we try to do for #communities  in #kansascity  - it seems like we're moving towards an interest in #crowdsourcing  information in order to empower local community members to shape their own #cities

GUDKC is carving out a little corner of the Google+ world. Follow along with us as we attack urban issues and fight for a crowdsourced approach to urban planning. The goal is simple: better cities for all of us.

We're starting our new Troost 90 project, in following the crazy long street #troost  in #kansascity . The project's focus is to document potential areas for #urbanrevitalization . Here's a teaser pic from what we saw today.

#kansascity "recently" released a list of the #big5ideas for the city. We weren't too keen on the ideas they selected, so we came up with our own list of KC #urbanimprovements . Check them out and let us know what you think!

What kinds of things make a #goodcity  and what kinds of tools would help you get more involved in shaping your own city? Do you see potential in #crowdsourcing ? Furthermore, how can we begin to #craft   #architecture  that supports local communities?  #urbanplanning   #kansascity   #janejacobs

A guerilla-like group that attacks urban problems from a surprising variety of perspectives to come up with smart solutions.
Introduction
Good Urban Deeds (KC) tags buildings, lots and spaces around Kansas City that are in serious need of some TLC. Then we pair up design and journalistic commentary to offer solutions for those same unused, abandoned and neglected environments. The result is unadulterated awesome. Dead space becomes happy space.
