5.  Post-Pandemic Reopening and Recovery: Retail District and Street Adaptation Strategies

As it became clear that the COVID-19 public health crisis would become an economic crisis as well, DVRPC developed and shared ‘5 Ps that are not pandemic’--strategies to help our region’s downtown retail districts survive the crisis and plan for recovery. As Southeastern PA and South Jersey communities move into guarded reopening with more outdoor activities especially, towns are getting creative by adapting street space for outdoor restaurant and retail use. Staff will present the 5th ‘P’--planning for recovery--and review street changes that are being tried nationally and locally for this purpose.
