Charette Reawakens Downtown Roanoke

Charrette conducted by planning firm Duany Plater-Zyberk & Co. generates ideas for improving downtown.

"An internationally known planning firm hired by the city, Duany Plater-Zyberk & Co., set up shop in the market building and held public meetings from Saturday through Friday. It put together an improvement model for downtown by using the existing downtown schematics and mixing in its expertise with community-generated ideas."

The addition of outdoor balconies, an improved farmer's market, and a new theatre are in store for the redevelopment of downtown Roanoke.
