Rural Downtown Revitalization

In Uncategorized by PTRPC Staff

A recipe for those who can hardly afford to do anything, but can’t afford to do nothing.

  1. Gather a group of concerned business owners and/or residents
  2. Make a short list of desired downtown improvements
  3. Identify the most affordable item on the short list
  4. Pass the hat, and/or recruit the volunteers to do the selected improvement
  5. Make the improvement as soon as possible
  6. Watch for evidence that the improvement did some good.
  7. Regroup to measure and celebrate the evidence, or ponder the lack thereof
  8. Return to step 2 and repeat.
