Community Development Webinar: Have you counted your empty buildings?

Counting your empty buildings is the first step to filling them. And filling those empty buildings boosts the prosperity of your town: more businesses, more activity downtown, more for visitors to do, more people with jobs. 


So how do you do that in a small rural town? 

  • Even when the building owners are a real pain?
  • Even when buildings are in bad shape?
  • Even when no one knows what business to start?

Deb Brown and Becky McCray are sharing all this and more next week in a webinar. Except it isn't like a webinar. It's like a live class or workshop that streams via video to you. No slides. No charts. You get live video of Deb and Becky instead. The juicy info and links come in a separate handout. 


They'll present a dozen ideas tested in real small towns, including the Tour of Empty Buildings, shared spaces, pop-ups, and even figuring out the real reasons buildings are staying empty in the first place.


The live event is Tuesday, August 16, 6pm CDT, but you don't have juggle your schedule to catch the live broadcast, because you get access to the recording for two weeks from August 17 - 30.


You don't have to watch alone, get excited, and then never get going. You can schedule a watch party with other people in your town. Get a group together. Make notes. Talk about what you can do together. Schedule as many watch parties as you like between Aug 16 and Aug 30. 


The cost is US$20, and that includes the live event and two weeks of access to the recording.
