Join the Citizens’ Institute on Rural Design for a free webinar tracing creative placemaking’s economic development outcomes. The webinar will feature Zachary Mannheimer of Des Moines, IA, and his approach to economic development in small towns with a focus on retaining young people and creative professionals. Attendees will learn about the implementation of creative projects like a downtown building in Earlham, IA that is being converted into a new culinary school and restaurant, and about an abandoned hotel that is being developed into market rate housing. The webinar will provide landscape architects and other design professionals with an overview of the way creative placemaking enhances livability and economic opportunity for small towns and rural communities.
