Thursday, November, 6th, 2014 - Thursday, November, 6th, 2014

Description: As existing retail development relocates into new market areas, local jurisdictions are often faced with what to do with the swath of aging and most often vacant retail centers and buildings left behind. Speakers will provide a brief background as to what created this large inventory of vacant and/or underperforming retail centers; the market barriers to redevelopment of these properties; why this issue is important to local governments; and examples of successful public and private initiatives that have reinvigorated failing retail centers. This issue is of significant importance to cities and counties across the US as suburban communities age and tax base erodes. To register:
