    Creative Counties: A How-To Discussion on Main Street Redevelopment Projects

    A community’s main street is often the historical center of the community. In the latter half of the twentieth century, many main streets and their storefronts were abandoned for newer buildings on the outskirts of town. This session will explore strategies counties are using to revitalize main streets and historic commercial districts to build vibrant, walkable neighborhoods and thriving economies – from innovating funding to creative placemaking.

    From innovative funding to creative placemaking, explore how counties are revitalizing underutilized Main Streets and historic commercial districts, transforming them into vibrant, walkable neighborhoods and thriving economies.
