Enlivening Our Main Streets

Main streets in towns across the country are being revitalized as residents begin to realize the importance of a downtown. But reversing a declining downtown or a crumbling commercial corridor is a more complicated problem than additional funding alone can fix. How do you build community, activate empty storefronts and make main streets better places to live, work and play?
