In this brief we share some examples of where nature can be found or added to a downtown and then how it can enhance a community’s economy. To visualize this, we created an example of a downtown or town center that could be found or enhanced in a typical community in New Hampshire. Starting in the upper left corner, we see how a potential business can integrate with a downtown and natural assets such as a river and trees and also be close to housing.
