For those that may want to have a base ordinance to take to their local communities to prevent fracking, I offer this copy of the ordinance passed by the City of Fort Collins Colorado. May we all find a way out from the mess that is fracking. Bless you for trying.
Founder Rachel Prinz's page has been featured on the about.me front page alongside the likes of Richard Branson. Pageviews have increased 3,000 percent. Our message is growing! And in more ways than one! Rachel has also been asked to provide a proposal to provide Placemaking services to one of the New Mexico Arts and Culture Districts! Just wait til you see what's coming!!!
Founder Rachel Prinz is prepping for a lecture next week... on why we shouldn't be legislating the creation of ersatz architectural history (through zoning requirements that demand a certain "style" of building)... because it obscures whats actually great about design and architecture of the past... and puts us in a present without context. What are your thoughts?
Rachel took some of the ideas she has been taking in from the many books she is reading lately - from what she thought were disparate fields - and made a video for our readers about some cool ways we can try to elevate the practice of design.How else can we grow these conversations?
Archinia founder Rachel Prinz feels blessed to have helped the State Department welcome preservation professionals from around the world to America so we can share ideas.

When I am working, I spend a lot of time traveling, listening, and taking photographs.
This is how most people see me. I was surveying in Santa Barbara documenting one of the endpoints of the Old Spanish Trail. This past week, I found out that 29 wikipedia entries for historic sites, including in Santa Barbara, are using my photos.
Here's the list of our photos on WikiMedia.
