Commercial Corridor Redevelopment Strategies

PAS Report 598

All commercial corridors have the potential to be vibrant, compelling, and sustainable community assets. But this vision doesn’t always match reality, especially for declining auto-oriented, retail-focused strips. The latest PAS Report provides planners with a comprehensive suite of market-based strategies to improve their communities’ commercial corridors.
