I'm in need of some help from the throbbing brain...
A section of one of our main commercial corridors has fallen onto hard times. There is a concentration of motels that have become housing for 99% of the town's registered sex offenders, and the main locus of prostitution and other criminal activity.
We're doing a complete overhaul of our town's zoning and development standards. The current plan is to rezone from a suburban style business zone to a new-urban "Commercial Office Residential" district with accompanying stricter regs on design and architecture.
But what more can we do to be pro-active about cleaning this strip up?
