Helping bring life back to downtowns has been the mission of the National Main Street Center for the past 40 years. Patrice Frey, the organization's president and CEO, sits down with Dan Gilmartin to discuss the successful 4-point process they've developed that helps cities identify their vision and assets and gets community members involved in moving a revitalization plan forward. She also talks about the effect of globalism on downtowns and how communities can use it to develop a more robust entrepreneurial landscape.
