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”.

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.
