Main Street Revitalization

Why try “new urbanism” when the “old urbanism” is ready and waiting right at our doorstep. Cities and towns throughout the northeast have underutilized centers just waiting for new uses and activities. Dodson & Flinker works with communities and private developers to find new ways to revitalize the beautiful historic structures and streetscapes that have been left to us by past generations. Whether infilling vacant lots, modifying landuse regulations to encourage reinvestment, revitalizing streetscapes or developing urban design strategies for entire downtown districts, the firm applies its planning and designs skills to bring out the potential of declining or underutilized city, town and village centers.
