Nightlife that is well planned and managed is an asset to your city.

Vibrant social options like bars, restaurants, live music venues and night clubs attract students, tourists and entrepreneurs. They create jobs and drive the economic (re)development of a business district or downtown.

Nightlife Requires Resources for Management

Yet poorly managed nightlife can drain your city's resources. Fights, shootings, unruly crowds at closing time, traffic, parking issues, and resident complaints about late-night noise can make nightlife challenges seem insurmountable. But they're not.

RHI's Process Improves Safety and Vibrancy in your Nighttime Economy

Our community-based process is based on inclusion, consensus and on-site observations. We conduct a late-night tour to witness your nightlife firsthand. Then, we help you determine how best to move forward with a plan of action.

Learn about our approach to helping cities plan and manage their nightlife by exploring the links on the right.
