Description: The most frequently used strategy in modern plans focused on a multi-modal transportation system in centers and corridors. The first versions of these plans focused on revitalization of the historic downtowns and the early streetcar suburbs. And since the urban form preceded the era of auto oriented design, often these were early successes with an easy transition to a dense, pedestrian friendly redevelopment. Now, much of the future is redeveloping arterial corridors developed from the 1950’s on – with an auto dominated, low density environment with ample parking lots and no pedestrian features. John will be talking about recent project and successes in revitalizing the next frontier of centers and corridors.
