Free webcast on attracting retail to downtowns and neighborhoods, Nov. 6

[Source: Buxton Company— Over the past few decades, many American cities have lost much of the retail density and diversity that made downtowns and older neighborhoods destinations for shoppers.  Retail businesses in downtowns and along commercial corridors in neighborhoods especially suffered from changing retail patterns and shopping habits.  Today many cities are actively involved in downtown and neighborhood revitalization activities.  They envision healthy downtowns and neighborhoods as integral to their identity, tax base, and sense of community.  Strengthening the retail base by attracting new retailers and restaurants has become an accepted strategy for revitalization.

During this comprehensive 60-minute webcast, participants will hear how communities are attracting and growing their retail sectors in underserved geographic areas.
