Making It Happen: Local Approaches to Downtown Economic Revitalization

A new generation of workers and budding families are looking to call downtown home. With them come the corporations, small businesses and institutions that make a vibrant, walkable community full of jobs, transportation options and activity. Getting to that point can be a struggle for many towns and cities; and in an era of dwindling state and federal support, generating and coordinating the local capacity necessary to plan and implement revitalization strategies is a challenge. This plenary session will showcase three unique and exciting approaches to downtown economic revitalization, featuring speakers from Cincinnati, Detroit and Providence. The lessons they learned and the work they accomplished can inform towns and cities both large and small on how to focus their time and talents on creating exciting and thriving downtowns.
