Casey Anderson wrote this article for Greater Greater Washington. He discusses the renewing of Silver Spring‘s central business district, which has been a site of redevelopment and has been successful, but they have brought in a disproportionate number of teens that often make older folks with families feel uncomfortable. One of the challenges of good redevelopment is inviting everyone into the city, not just the twenty-somethings with no kids. Of course we need to fix inner-city schools, which John Norquist did a great job of in Milwaukee, to really attract families, but a better mix of businesses is a good start as well.
