To create a downtown where people want to be.
"The downtown is the only part of the city that belongs to everybody. It doesn’t matter where you may find your home; the downtown is yours, too. Investing in the downtown of a city is the only place-based way to benefit all of its citizens at once.
Quoted from: "Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time" – Jeff Speck
