Most cities have them: distressed areas where private investment has not appeared for years. These disinvested areas, where distressed sizes of populations have grown 75% in urban areas and 139% in suburban areas from 2000 to 2010, must be addressed to combat the adverse present and long-term economic and social consequences. While the causes of disinvestment are complex, they can be targeted when economic developers partner across the public and private sector to rectify the many social, physical, and economic opportunity barriers at play. Fixing these issues, such as tackling vacancy and blight, empowering residents with economic opportunities, and revitalization or stabilization of commercial spaces can break the cycle of disinvestment and drastically improve the quality of life for residents and businesses. Learn how you and your community can attract investment to these areas, grow your local economy and tax bases, and economically empower your residents and businesses to their maximum potential.
