“A positive, safe and vibrant place to enjoy work, business, culture, shopping and food experiences.” - RPC member's comment

RPC held a "Listening Session" during our October Monthly RPC Meeting for the Governor's Central City Task Force. The topic was “downtown’s value proposition in terms of economic activity and mix – what tools and incentives are needed?” Thanks to the over 60 members who joined and participated. We were pleased with the turnout and the level of participation by our CRE community!

A summary of the action items and recommendations (presented to the Task Force) is here:
