Each time I heard the word "revitalization' used at the New Orleans Housing Conservation District Review Committee meeting on December 10, 2007, I shuddered inwardly.

Later, at the keyboard and curious as to the reasoning for my emotional reaction, I googled

and had a positively mystical experience.

define: revitalization

When a neighborhood in decline is given new life or vigor.

Related phrases: revitalization movement brand revitalization

A major overhaul of a brand, starting with its positioning and proceeding through creative regeneration of the brand identity.
