Downtown Revitalization

Description: The phrase downtown revitalization conveys two very important ideas: First, we’re dealing with traditional downtown and village centers, most of which contain historic buildings and places that have physical and visual qualities that must be respected. Second, revitalization implies that these centers must have vitality: they need to generate economic and cultural activity that justifies renewed interest and investment. The challenge of revitalization is to stimulate new development and activity while retaining the historical integrity and physical qualities that define a downtown’s or village center’s traditional character and identity. This chapter of the Implementation Manual introduces downtown revitalization concepts and resources.
