Growth by choice, not chance.
Many communities have made significant investments in streetscape improvements only to have very attractive, but still empty streets. Some wait for developers to show up, believing "if you build it, they will come". Yet, most redevelopment site plans, although attractive and appealing, include no specific plans for recruiting appropriate businesses to fill the space.
Community InsightsSM provides the information, strategies, and resources you need to develop a vision for your downtown, build consensus among stakeholders, and clarify opportunities. We then help focus your efforts on recruiting the businesses that are best suited to your community or specific redevelopment projects, retaining existing businesses and helping them prosper, and creating a destination that brings shoppers back again and again.
