11/12 - Bring Back Main Street with Small-Scale Manufacturing: The Who, the Why, and the How (CM | 1

Updated: Dec 30, 2019

Too many places are stuck with a set of economic development strategies left over from the 1980s. People and places are being left behind -- but it doesn’t have to be that way. Join the Smart Growth Network at 1 p.m. Nov. 12 to learn about how we can flip the model on economic development and do it a better way. An approach that invests in people and places. An approach that focuses on actions today and not just long-term plans.

Ilana Preuss, Founder and CEO of Recast City and a former chief of staff and vice president at Smart Growth America, will discuss how to build a strong and resilient economy through concrete steps that include entrepreneurship, why (and how) to focus on small-scale manufacturing businesses as a catalyst, and how new real estate models for Main Street (and downtown) can be essential to success.

Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits.
