This tour will commence in January 2010 and will encompass over 100 downtown cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

"Anecdotal evidence suggests a resurgence of interest in downtowns as epicenters of regional vitality," Scott says. "As such urban centers are increasingly being sought out for the lifestyle and work amenities they offer." This trend follows a 1999 Rouse Forum survey released in conjunction with the Second Annual James W Rouse Forum on the American City, which predicted that the downtown population of many American cities would boom by the year 2010. "Growing numbers of individuals are increasingly attracted to the vibrancy and efficiency advantages of dense urban environments," says Scott. "That bodes well for the future of central-city areas."

Scott will spend his first two months touring downtowns in California and Texas. Cities on the initial leg of the tour include Sacramento, Davis, Berkeley, San Luis Obispo, San Diego, Austin, Ft. Worth, and San Antonio.

As part of the tour, Scott intends to meet with local citizens and city leaders to gain an in-depth perspective on each downtown's assets and best-case practices. Jobs, housing, transportation and other amenities will be among the topics specifically discussed. He also plans to explore emerging models for economic development, adaptive reuse and sustainable growth in urban core areas.

"In the new economic normal, collaboration is the key to recognizing challenges, overcoming problems and building vibrant downtown cities that can capitalize on their positions as locales of civic connection," Scott says.

Regular updates regarding this study tour will be posted on Twitter (@urbanist27) and on vdowntownamerica.com -- the information of which will serve as the basis for a future book.
