Roger Brooks Webinar – Part 6
8:30am - 10:00am 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 sixth webinar, “The Resurgence of Downtowns – Priority #1” will be shown at 8:30am on Wednesday, July 19, 2017, in the Robert G. Geiger Council Chambers located at Port Orchard City Hall, 216 Prospect Street, Port Orchard, WA.
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; and
- Photography showcasing six smaller downtowns (it only takes a couple of blocks) and what they do for the community.
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.
These webinars are free and open to the public.
