Downtown Revitalization through Community Collaboration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Rural downtowns have emptied with the shift of consumer spending habits to the online environment.  Vacant store fronts and underutilized upper stories in deteriorated historic buildings have become commonplace on Main Street.  Traditional development isn’t happening because it simply doesn’t pencil out – it costs three times as much to redevelop a building as its value when completed.  Is there a solution to reverse this trend and bring life back to your downtown?  There is and it lies in the power of the community.  Learn how community members can become developers and answer the question “How does a community begin a downtown revitalization project?”
