As 2020 winds to a close, we gratefully look ahead to a new year and how our region will adapt to the dramatic changes and impacts of the global Covid-19 pandemic. It is certainly true that once there is an effective and widely available vaccine, many things will return to “normal” fairly quickly. Our kids will go back to school — thankfully! We will eagerly gather with our friends and family at restaurants, theaters and concerts. There are signs, however, that other behaviors and preferences may not return to pre-pandemic norms and may shift development patterns and customer demand for the longer term.
