Upcoming webinar in the community boardroom (first floor City Hall) Wednesday, July 19th from 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM on the “Resurgence of Downtowns”. Following the webinar we will have a roundtable discussion on how these practices can relate to Merritt. Refreshments will be provided by the City of Merritt. 

 

Webinar Overview:

The Resurgence of Downtowns Webinar by Roger Brooks

Over the years we’ve spent a considerable amount of time and effort helping make downtowns great – again. In this photographic-rich workshop, you’ll learn:

- The seven reasons why downtowns are back and are absolutely critical to your long-term success as a sustainable community

- What it takes to bring millennials (and even GenXers) back home (downtown plays a key role)

- The future of downtowns (it’s a whole new game)

- Why downtowns are a worthy investment (not an expense)

- What it takes to bring downtowns back, or make them the community a showcase

This is a terrific primer to help encourage city and other government leaders to understand that downtowns are worth investing in. It’s also a great way to foster public-private partnerships (it takes both) to create an outstanding downtown that will benefit local residents, businesses, and your visitors.
