Webinar “Meet Me Downtown”: Case Studies in Small Town Economic Development

February 5, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Free

Across the country, small towns are rediscovering and reclaiming their main streets and downtowns by pursuing innovative community and economic development projects. Once abandoned sidewalks, storefronts, and plazas are now bustling with activity as residents find their way back downtown, once again making these spaces the social, civic, and economic centers of their communities.

Join the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation on Wednesday, February 5 from 2-3:15 ET for a free webinar highlighting three small towns (Greenville, KY; Claremont, NH; and Millen, GA) that are investing in their downtowns through streetscape improvements, historic preservation, brownfields remediation, and tourism initiatives. Learn how strong local and regional leadership, dedicated volunteers, and a mix of local, state, and federal funding can come together to transform downtowns and main streets, improving both quality-of-life and economic opportunities for residents.

Presenters:

  • Jason Vincent, Executive Director, Pennyrile Area Development District
  • Nancy Merrill, Director, Planning and Development, City of Claremont, NH
  • Linda Grijalva, Director of Community Development, Central Savannah River Area Regional Commission

Moderator:

  • Brett Schwartz, Program Manager, NADO Research Foundation
