Through our Downtown Strategic Visioning Workshop, we assess the five pillars of your downtown’s mix to provide a true roadmap to revitalization.
The 5 Pillars
We begin by assessing your consumers from multiple geographies. Using our advanced analytics and proprietary tools, we uncover and define the economic potential in your Downtown area based on a custom trade area derived from mobile data tracking.
Policy & Administration
Policy & Administration involves creating a strong foundation for a sustainable revitalization effort, including cultivating partnerships, community involvement, and resources for the district.
Thoughtful design supports a community’s transformation by enhancing the physical and visual assets that set the commercial district apart.
Tourism & Promotion
Smart promotion initiatives position your Downtown or commercial district as the center of the community and hub of economic activity, while creating a positive image that showcases a community’s unique characteristics.
Economic Vitality focuses on capital, incentives, and other economic and financial tools to assist new and existing businesses, catalyze property development, and create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators that drive local economies.
We work to find that special project – perhaps a brewery, boutique, or restaurant – that will act as a catalyst to start revitalization of your downtown.
Strategic Visioning Workshop
We host a workshop with your local leaders and downtown stakeholders to gather feedback on opportunities and challenges for the downtown area.
