Downtowns are increasingly becoming the major economic generators for cities across the country.
“We want to present the most relevant information available to educate the audience on importance of downtowns as economic generators,” said Mary Miller, president & CEO of Downtown Norfolk Council. “We anticipate the information will energize our region to explore opportunities for regional economic growth.”
Urban expert Bruce Katz, co-author of The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive in the Age of Populism, will be the keynote speaker. Katz is the co-founder of New Localism Advisors, a firm that helps cities design, finance and deliver transformative initiatives that promote inclusive and sustainable growth. Katz regularly advises global, national, state, regional and municipal leaders on public reforms and private innovations that advance the well-being of metropolitan areas and their countries.
