Description:

Ever since the rise in importance of the automobile, many public intellectuals, academics, urban planners, and sociologists have lamented the decline of traditional downtowns across America. In this report from The Brookings Institution, Christopher B. Leinberger explores the key facets that are necessary to effectively revitalize downtown areas. In the report, Leinberger comments on the importance of "fostering walkable urbanity", but is also mindful to also note that creating such types of places is at times vastly complex. Some of the twelve steps offered here may sound familiar to many, including the oft-suggested remedy "Create an Urban Entertainment District" and "Re-create a Strong Office Market". Without a doubt, persons interested in such places will find much to agree and disagree with in this paper, and thus it's definitely worth a close look.
