Main Street, LLC: Put Your Money Where Your House Is
Friday, May 15, 2015 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Is your downtown succumbing to vacant and decaying historic buildings? To combat downward momentum, Rick Hauser, mayor of Perry, New York, and owner of In. Site: Architecture developed Main Street, LLC, a community-based for-profit development corporation. Main Street, LLC recognizes the quantitative and qualitative benefits of reversing neglect and urges people to “put their money where their house is.”
On May 15, Rick joins CommunityMatters® and the Citizens’ Institute on Rural Design™ (CIRD) for a 60-minute webinar. He’ll offer new insights into a longstanding challenge for towns and small cities—getting the ball rolling to overcome vacancy and blight in key downtown locations.
CommunityMatters® equips small cities and towns to strengthen their places and inspire action. We champion the idea that by tapping local wisdom to make decisions, solve problems and take action, communities can become more socially vibrant and economically resilient. Our podcasts bring local leaders and national experts together to fuel a growing knowledge base for community leaders looking to go beyond “business as usual.” We invite you to join us as we work to build stronger communities.
