"Petco has really made a transformation to downtown’s residential community,” said Erik Bruvold, NUSIPR president. “It’s made it more vibrant, gave it an active street life and encouraged people to move downtown and consider it a residential option.”
Bruvold added in a region that has a chronic housing shortage and an ambivalent attitude toward growth, this transformation has region-wide implications.
