Registration remains open for the Economic Development Workshop being hosted by the Heritage Corridor Convention and Visitors Bureau and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
“Why Main Streets Matter! Bringing Visitors to Your Small Business” will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Gaylord Building, 200 W. Eighth St., Lockport.
The workshop will feature Lauren Adkins, a nationally recognized expert in downtown revitalization.
Registration, which includes lunch, costs $35 and is encouraged, as space is limited.
The workshop will provide participants an opportunity to focus on downtown revitalization to bring visitors, and jobs, to these commercial areas.
“Community leaders know where their ‘main street’ is, and why it matters to their community’s economic stability,” said CVB President and CEO Bob Navarro.
Adkins has worked with the National Trust Main Street Center, served as neighborhood commercial district program executive director in Arlington, Va.
