Vermont Community Development Association Spring Conference: “Reimagining Our Public Spaces”

When: June 17th 2021 9:00am-12:00pm EST

Location: Online  Link: https://www.vtcda.org/spring-2021.html

Description:  As community leaders around the state look towards the future, and to recovery from the crisis we have faced, they are thinking creatively about how to bring their communities together now and in the years to come. How can our public spaces - both indoor and outdoor - contribute to the vibrancy of our main streets and village centers? How can these spaces boost economic development, resilience, community connection, and sense of place? How can historic buildings be repurposed and readapted to serve the needs of today and our community into the future?

On June 17th, join community and economic development leaders from around the state to:

-      Hear from featured keynote speaker Chet Clem, President of Lyme Properties in Lebanon, NH

-      Hear what other communities have done to reimagine and redevelop public spaces

-      Hear from a panel of experts who will walk through project development from idea to implementation

-      Have a chance to ask your questions of technical and financial resource providers
