    The 2010 census will improve these dreary statistics. Hopefully local retailers have already seen the improvements made already.

    The 2010 census will help, but it takes time for the census to define new boundaries and compile the data. Market research firms will then need additional time to incorporate the Census data into their products. Data will be released in phases like population will come out somewhat quickly but economic data from the 2010 census may not be widely available until 2012.

    It is amazing how much things can change in one neighborhood in under a decade.

    Yes, things have changed alot. Some businesses have been bought out west of 6th Street like Hodges and A.V. But most of the change is simply adding density to under utilized land rather than displacement.

    The low income housing hasn’t been pushed out. More has actually been added such as Golden Rule Plaza which came online in 2003. Through infusion of development the area is becoming a mix of incomes rather than a concentration of low income it was at the last census.
