Participants will review case studies from across the US that demonstrate how small, traditional commerical development yields more total value per acre and taxes than stand-alone facilities like big-box stores and fast food restaurants. Participants will also learn how traditionally-developed commercial buildings are more resilient and adaptable than large commericla businesses on the edges of town. 

Following the luncheon, attendees will tour some of Wabash's recent projects, including Rock City Lofts, an affordable senior housing project in a repurposed downtown commercial building. Note that this session is by invitation only from the Mayor of Wabash to elected officials and municipal employees. It includes a luncheon, therefore we are only requesting 2.5 credit hours for the amount of learning time.
