A collective asset
The lively hub of activity that is a commercial artery or a downtown district is a collective public asset to be protected. Its vitality is desirable: if it begins to decline, it can have a negative impact on the city’s image and appeal as well as on the quality of life of its residents.
Mobilizing for change
A local shopping district can become vibrant and competitive if the community takes charge of it and if it is properly structured to promote itself, enhance the urban experience and highlight its distinctive character.
