These are areas in a town that is experiencing growth in one area while another has no growth and may be decaying, sometimes to the point of urban blight.
The street on the west side of town is getting all sorts of big box stores. On the east side of town it is a development dead zone with just a gas station, an old motel, and a run-down restaurant.
