Our Results
Assisting the business community: In addition to promoting the City through facilitating commercial and industrial business, the Liberty Community Development Corporation has worked on several projects since inception.

Protecting our community resources: Foremost is the construction of a five-mile embankment northwest of the City near the Trinity River.

Exploring development opportunities: Released from debt obligations following the levee infrastructure project, LCDC is currently assessing potential development opportunities. Projects under discussion include downtown façade and curb appeal, revitalization of blighted areas, airport improvements, commercial and industrial developments, tourism and preservation.

Reframing Retail as a Community Asset, Not a Liability

By Alexandra Tranmer, Project Manager, Camoin Associates

The transformation of the retail industry continues into 2019. Beta-testing drone deliveries, cashier-less grocery stores and sampling new paint colors through augmented reality are just a few of the strategies that retailers are using to expand their market share and reach their coveted consumers. Yet, beyond using tactics like experiential retail and re-evaluating consumers’ purchasing preferences, retailers, and perhaps community builders at large, continue to grapple with how the right retail mix can be leveraged as a complementary asset to residents and other businesses. Although Credit Suisse predicted that 20-25 percdnt of U.S. malls will close between 2017-2022, the demand for retail as an amenity that contributes to the development and competitiveness of other markets is strong. While retail is certainly still a challenging sector for small business operators, chances for success are greatly improved when retail is integrated into the fabric of our commutes, daily lives and work patterns. This article will explore how retail is positioned as a critical component of development in large metro areas and smaller cities, and the role of the economic developer in coordinating the multi-disciplinary teams that are necessary to lay the groundwork for retail success. 

Yes, retail remains in a transformative state. Yes, eCommerce has redefined the public’s expectations of how and where they can purchase everyday goods. Ecommerce sales however only comprise about 10 percent of total retail sales. The 2018 3rd Quarter U.S. Retail Sales report from the U.S. Census reports that total retail sales reached $1,340.2 billion, an increase of 0.9 percent from the 2nd quarter of 2018. Of total retail sales, eCommerce accounted for about $130.9 million, or about 9.8 percent.
