Observables: Revitalization Trends

Subjectively, it’s easy to tell a vital urban area from a dormant one. You can see the difference in the smiles of pedestrians, feel it in the instinctive sense of safety when walking at night, and hear it in the way people in the community talk about their downtown.

Objectively, several criteria can help indicate whether revitalization is taking hold. Our Department’s success will be measured by trends in the data below. Check back at this site as we establish benchmark data and track changes over time.
