Why Revitalize?

Here are just a few reasons a community should consider forming a revitalization organization.

A vital downtown or neighborhood commercial district:

  • Reflects community prosperity and pride
  • Represents a significant portion of the community's tax base
  • Offers convenience and service
  • Reduces sprawl by concentrating retail in one area, thus using community resources wisely
  • Protects property values in surrounding residential neighborhoods
  • Becomes a prominent employment center

The traditional downtown business district is an ideal location for independent businesses, which in turn:

  • Helps keep profits in town
  • Supports other local businesses and services
  • Supports other local family-owned businesses
  • Supports local community projects and schools
  • Provides a diverse economic foundation
