Adapting our Neighborhoods, Streets and Homes to E-Commerce - A Study Workshop

May 7, 2019 1:30 PM
4:30 pm

3 CM / LU Pending

With the continuing rise of on-line shopping, at the expense of bricks and mortar stores, the US is experiencing the highest rate of mall and retail closures on record. People are still buying merchandise, so how is it getting to our door step and what does our "door step" need to become to receive all of this merchandise? How are our curbs, lobbies and porches coping with this? Are our streets to be forever blocked by double-parked delivery trucks? Are we going to need to share sidewalks with autonomous delivery Sherpas? How will we accommodate a delivery drone air force? And what happens to our former retail hubs and the local and state sales taxes that they generate? Participate in a workshop that will examine neighborhood delivery & pick-up, re-purposing of regional retail malls, impacts on multi-unit housing lobbies and mailrooms as they adapt to this changing retail paradigm.
