Focus Areas are catalysts for their larger context. They are strategically located sites with the potential to benefit the entire district, or even the city as a whole. Reimagining these areas as more dynamic economically, aesthetically, or functionally can have a transformational effect. These long-term visions provide inspiration and a framework as smaller improvements occur incrementally.
