This revitalization plan was designed at the request of Prince William County and the Town of Quantico. The process involved a series of public meetings and workshops conducted by the Planning Office of Prince William County, Centerbrook Architects, and Economic Research Associates. Quantico is located on the southern side of the mouth of Quantico Creek, around the bend from the Potomac River. It is surrounded on three sides by the Quantico Marine Base. Since its founding in 1654 it has remained an example of "Main Street America."
The result of the public meetings and workshop process was a streetscape design complete with new lighting and street furniture, signage, awnings, landscaping, and facade improvements. These were designed in conjunction with a marketing strategy to encourage business vitality. These efforts will strengthen the town's image and encourage business revitalization.
