Urban Vision For Harrisonburg

Click To View Full Book (PDF 13 MB)

Harrisonburg’s booming economy has reached downtown. For several decades in the latter half of the 20th Century, the downtown deteriorated as business development moved to the malls and residential development moved to the suburbs, but that has changed.

The synergies created by local growth, regional opportunities, national trends, and global needs now grant us the opportunity to build-out the downtown based on good urban design values. This is an auspicious time in the life of Harrisonburg.
