Magna: Tying old, new is a challenge
Interesting article on the struggles going on in Magna.
Sadly areas like downtown Magna and it's are have been abandoned in favor of big box centers and pedestrian unfriendly suburban tract homes.
Of course Magna has a lot of potential. After all, it has historic buildings, pedestrian friendly neighborhoods, close to the 2100 South Expressway, one good bus route and a couple of others, the area has mature trees, in other words the potential is there.
