An interesting update from a growing "small town" downtown, emphasizing both essential long-range vision and specific technical expertise in infrastructure, urban design and finance.

Excellent! It included a brief TIF tutorial that was helpful. It was also good that Chris showed these successes require planning and commitment - Bozeman is reaping the benefits now for planning that began in 1995.

Urban Renewal as a Catalyst for Private Investment

E. Dustin Dunbar, AICP

Nice use of images, narrative. Interesting how this terrific tool was put into use and offer design/use that are BIG departures from Bozo's sensibilities. Love the re-use of the Armory. (Kudos to the sensitive implementation of 'urban renewal' in a community that once was so challenged as to object to installing a street tree in front of R. Evans Jewelers!?) Would appreciate a webinar on developing understanding & confidence about these renewal funding programs with elected officials/citizenry. THEY'RE the audience that needs to know.
