Thread: Case studies for commercial corridors?

    Case studies for commercial corridors?

    What are some of the more successful case studies of commercial district revitalization? (BIDs [business improvement district], SSAs [special service area], commercial corridors, commercial districts, small business programs)

    I'm researching case studies to serve as a model for an SSA in Chicago. Any case studies in Chicago and other major metropolitan areas around the country would be beneficial. I'm looking for a general overview of projects that have already been completed/are close to completion; I'm specifically interested in the objectives and results, financing strategies, legal issues, and other challenges.

    Any help/direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Contact the University of Wisconsin - Extension, where information on BIDs in the state has been compiled and tracked on an annual basis for many years.
