In this presentation, the final installment of The Resurgence of Downtowns, we will visit four downtowns, three that are small and rural and one in a bedroom community.
You’ll see and learn:
• What it looked like before and what they were dealing with. • Who took the lead, and why they even attempted “the impossible." • What went right (the small wins along the way) • What went wrong (the red herrings and mistakes - “We won’t do that again!”) • How long it took to get to the turning point • How much it cost and where the money came from • And the results - which are still a work in progress. After all no downtown is ever 100% done!
This is a great way to actually see, from real-life case histories what it takes to turn a dying downtown (if not already dead) into an amazing destination you’ll want to visit - if not move to!
