Rediscovering Main Street: Strategies for a Thriving Downtown

The desire to rediscover the classic Main Street as the heart and soul of the city has resurfaced in many forms throughout the country. In the Bay Area, we have seen numerous downtowns repurposed to more successfully capture a sense of community and place, as a draw for employment and housing, a destination for leisure and entertainment, and a place for preserving the historic past. Planners from four Bay Area cities with thriving, but very different Main Streets will share their insights about successful downtown planning. The second session will include the perspectives of developers, economists, and other professionals to examine strategies that make for a successful and viable downtown.
