Ten Principles for Reinventing America's Suburban Business Districts

Ten Principles for Reinventing America's Suburban Business Districts

Environmental Protection Agency

Changing demographics, a time-short population, and traffic congestion are driving the redevelopment of suburban business districts. These social and market trends offer the potential to transform America's surburban business districts into vibrant, pedestrian friendly live-work-shop places, making them the emerging focus of smart growth.

Geoffrey Booth is Director of Retail Development for the Urban Land Institute and co-author of the Urban Land Institute report "Ten Principles for Reinventing America's Suburban Business Districts." He will discuss how reinventing suburban business districts can deal with changing trends and changing needs of the community as well as why the transformation of suburban business districts is "the next
new thing" in overall urban revitalization efforts. Free/no registration.
