What We Do

For Municipalities

There are only two ways to create revenue. 
One way is to raise taxes. 

The better way is to create economic activity - that's what we do.

We revitalize towns by:

  • Creating jobs and revenue for municipalities
  • Innovating solutions for economic growth
  • Raising property values
  • Increasing occupancy and lease rates
  • Filling vacant and blighted properties
  • Improving the quality of life for residents and businesses
  • Negotiating resolutions to complicated decade-long conflicts 
  • Utilizing social media marketing to promote municipalities
  • Leasing, selling and repurposing commercial properties 
  • Cross-pollinating businesses, municipalities and organizations 
  • Assisting business start-ups 
  • Implementing Comprehensive Plans

Small Town Economics - Rebuilding America

"The scale of small towns allows for real revitalization to happen," remarked Barth. "Here it is possible to reach all audiences and create successful teams that influence change. Bottom-Up Economics partnered with Top-Down support creates an achievable revitalization model that works in every town. The Bottom Up/Top Down model has created hundreds of millions of dollars in new investment and 1,000+ jobs."
