The Common Council here is finally coming around to the idea of mixed use zoning in our downtown. In addition to Staff's ideas for our new district, I was hoping to present to them some "success stories" where mixed use zoning has had a positive benefit on underutilized, creaky downtowns.
Does anyone know of any small cities (~25k pop.) that have successful mixed use zoning districts in their downtown? Municipalities in the NY Metro area/Hudson Valley would be most preferable.
