An excellent example of how Aim is focused on accelerating Indiana municipalities is the Indiana Downtown® program that we offer in partnership with HyettPalma, Inc. Based on the highly successful America Downtown® technical assistance program first offered in 1992, the program is an economic development and downtown revitalization tool that assists cities and towns by creating a Downtown Action Agenda specifically tailored to each community. Each agenda includes:
- A vision of the downtown area’s future as defined by the community
- A market analysis quantifying downtown retail, office and housing potential
- A recommended course of action to be implemented over five years by the private and public sectors’ management recommendations regarding a downtown partnership and funding
Members who have participated in this program come away with a greater understanding of city center planning and the skills to work with the local community to achieve mutual development goals.
