Smaller older towns are reviving - are they in your state or region?It seems as if more people are looking for a 'village" atmosphere, even in urban areas. Places where people recognize each other, whether bankers, grocery store clerks, car repair, city officials, hair stylists....where one is aware of being a part of a community. i see this happening in downtown Pawtucket, RI, a city that was grand half a century ago, and decimated by the movement of mill work to the South. Are other middle sized towns and cities noticing focus in the downtown? Besides buidling new complexes, are other places restoring older downtowns? how is it happening?December 06 2010 - Pawtucket0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
