How Planning Turned City Around After Earthquake
This politically liberal beach city was jolted into action in more ways than one when the 1989 earthquake brought down several downtown buildings and much of its infrastructure. Jumping in and saving people and later a bookstore's inventory from the rubble, the community had to suspended its factional politics to save a downtown already in decline. Over three years the community united around a vision for downtown that is now a retail success story.
