A small bedroom community of 10,000 population does not currently have a true downtown. There is no street level retail, though the town is not completely sprawled out. There is some light density as retail is about 30' off the road, houses are about 20' from the street. The city is in the process of defining a formal downtown centered around public buildings and some of the most active retail.
Does anyone here know of any other towns that have done something similar?
Does anyone have any experience or tips for a community trying to do this?
