An agenda for 2014?

My New Year’s wish for Stockton is that its people, its downtown and its waterfront reach their potential. So I welcome Dan Cort’s guest editorial outlining an agenda for downtown’s revival.

Cort makes 10 suggestions, ranging from razing useless old buildings to setting urban growth boundaries. The most important is number 4, “Incentivize housing in downtown.” People living downtown are the sine qua non of downtown revival. 

In 2012, the Urban Land Institute laid out a plan to repopulate downtown. The plan, which I reported here, callled for furthering redevelopment efforts around the Cabral Station on downtown’s eastern edge, working in towards downtown’s center.

Can this plan be advanced in 2014? I’ll find out.
