Fragmentation of Businesses

Businesses in the study area are separated by natural and man made barriers. One of the obstacles for redevelopment are some of the tributaries, ponds and wetlands within this area that serve as physical barriers and can make development more costly.

Many of the business clusters have access through one shared entrance due to physical and environmental barriers. The CSX railroad is a major barrier bisecting the study area and separating business clusters.
