Free Economic Development Webinar – The Resurgence of Downtowns – What They Did and How They Did It
8:30am - 10:30am Port Orchard City Hall
216 Prospect Street, Port Orchard, WA 98366
The City of Port Orchard is hosting a series of webinars from Roger Brooks International. The next webinar, “The Resurgence of Downtowns – What They Did and How They Did it” will be shown at 8:30am on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, in the Robert G. Geiger Council Chambers located at Port Orchard City Hall, 216 Prospect Street, Port Orchard, WA.
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!
These webinars are free and open to the public.
