    Event Description:
    Downtown Main Street Presents “Positioning Downtown to be Development Ready”—September 19—9AM-1PM—Red Wing Ignite
    This seminar is hosted by Rethos Main Streets, formerly Preservation Alliance of Minnesota, and Red Wing Downtown Main Street. Information will be presented by Michael Wagler, Main Street Iowa Coordinator, and Jim Thompson, the Downtown Economic Development Specialist, both at the Iowa Economic Development Authority, this workshop will explore useful downtown development policies to support real estate development. Making use of every inch of a downtown building helps both property owners with cash flow and downtown residents bring activity, life, and customers to downtown. Because many downtowns have so many underutilized and/or vacant buildings, there is great deal of opportunities for this activity. Public/private partnerships can make a positive difference for communities trying to encourage this development or redevelopment, particularly in their downtowns. But sometimes apathy, lack of readiness, misinformation, and shortage of knowledge of the available development tools prevent development. In this fast-paced presentation, participants will learn about tested tools and strategies that can be used to help communities with downtown economic development and downtown housing development. Early registration for this workshop ends on Thursday, September 5. For more information and to register, visit https://www.rethos.org/events/positioning-downtown-to-be-development-ready.
