Some food for thought on downtown revitalization

Here's some news stories germane to our projects:

How to get big retailers into constrained downtown spaces--like BordersBooks in downtown Baton Rouge in the article here.

How to target specific stores for downtown that offer something different from the 'burbs.

And two "Smart City" stories from NPR:

How connecting a city through greenways can increase civic engagement.

And how to design parking downtown.
