2019 DOWNTOWN FORUMS

The Iowa Downtown Resource Center will offer several downtown forums in July focusing on the characteristics of a successful downtown.

The day will include a self-assessment tool and discussion topics in five major areas – characteristics that contribute to the success of a downtown. There will also be an overview of programs and grant opportunities for downtowns.

Attendees will have an opportunity to share experiences relating to the downtown forum discussion and communicate with other community leaders the exciting happenings occurring in their commercial districts.
