Product Overview

Big-box retail is here to stay. How can planners avoid the pitfalls and take advantage of the opportunities presented by these commercial behemoths?

This report explains the planning, design, and regulatory techniques that have been used by communities and the companies themselves to find solutions that meet the needs of citizens and retailers. It describes the types of big-box retailers and provides definitions from zoning ordinances. It covers planning concerns such as aesthetics and traffic generation, as well as big-box stores' affects on local economies. With examples of everything from design control to demolition bonds to adaptive reuse, the report shows how communities around the country are responding to the rise of the big box.
