What are the essential ingredients to a thriving Main Street? Thinking beyond our current network and our notions of "traditional" Main Street places, where could the Main Street approach take root? In auto-centric corridors home to strip malls? In purpose-built new developments? In communities lacking historic buildings, but rich in cultural identity? In regional networks of small rural districts? Join us for a dynamic discussion that challenges our tried-and-true notions of the buildings and blocks needed for a successful Main Street and explores the potential for community vitality and resilience in diverse new environments.
