Why Downtowns Matter
Downtowns are irrefutable contributors to, or detractors from, a city’s “quality of life”. As a city symbol, as a working and living place, as a cultural amenity, downtowns continue to embody the community’s sense of itself. That’s why all across the country, communities are preserving, restoring and celebrating their downtowns.
