Experts Say Downtown Revitalization Taking Effect

Local efforts draw young entrepreneurs to downtown.

Friday Business Report


The Friday Business Report with AZPM's Zac Ziegler and Inside Tucson Business Editor Thelma Grimes takes a look at thoughts expressed by local business experts at a recent Arizona Forward panel discussion. Arizona Forward is a public interest group centered on economic development and the environment.

The discussion focused on the recent success of revitalizing downtown Tucson, and local efforts to draw in young entrepreneurs. Those efforts include the Modern Streetcar and creating a work/live/play environment that many in the millennial generation seem to favor.

Also, the Tanque Verde Swap Meet celebrates its 40th year of operation.
