Downtown Development as an Economic Development Strategy

Most cities have a downtown or central business district, an asset that already exists, but is it providing economic development benefits to that community – sales tax, property tax, small businesses, and jobs?  This part of the city is already being supported by city services and represents an ongoing investment, so why not maximize its impact on the broader economic goals of the community!

This workshop and forum will provide elected officials with information about creating an economic development strategy to fuel development in their downtowns. The key topics addressed in this workshop include the following:

  • Identifying the role of the downtown in the city’s economic development efforts
  • Downtown development planning and partnerships
  • Resources for Downtown Development
  • Economic Impact Assessments for Downtown Programs
  • Housing development in your downtown plan
