View Executive Summary

This project focuses on the story of West Littleton Boulevard, also known as “Mid Mod Mile” due to its collection of commercial Mid-Century Modern buildings. The boulevard was a major economic engine in the 1960s and 1970s, but now there are perceptions that businesses are under-performing. The City of Littleton may be conducting an area plan for the corridor and wishes to obtain a clear picture of its social, historic, economic, and physical attributes to create a vision of the future.
