 Keynote Speaker Charles Marohn, Jr. with Strong Towns!

 
We are thrilled to welcome Charles Marohn, Executive Director of Strong Towns, as our RevitalizeWA 2013 Keynote Speaker! Strong Towns, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Minnesota, has a fresh take on community design and sustainability. Marohn believes typical development patterns - the way we build our towns and neighborhoods - cost more to maintain than they generate in return. Strong Towns has introduced a new model of sustainable growth that allows America's towns to become financially secure and self-sufficient by establishing an approach to development that accounts for the full cost of growth. Charles Marohn is a Professional Engineer and a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP). He has a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota's Institute of Technology and a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute. Additionally, Marohn is a member of the National Society of Professional Engineers, the American Planning Association, the Congress for the New Urbanism, and he serves as president of the Community Growth Institute, a planning organization that works with small towns and rural areas.

Hollywood on Main Street: Historic Theater Workshop

We are thrilled to present Hollywood on Main Street: Reviving Washington’s Historic Theaters as part of RevitalizeWA, our third annual preservation and Main Street conference hosted this year in Vancouver, Washington. This workshop is designed to engage owners, operators, and lovers of historic theaters across the Pacific Northwest. We will be highlighting a series of successful historic theaters operating in Washington and Oregon, as well as engaging attendees in discussions of best practices for programming, operational funding, building maintenance and rehabilitation, and technology upgrades, including various levels of digitization.

The workshop will take place at the historic Kiggins Theatre on May 15 from 9am-4pm at a cost of $40.

preliminary workshop schedule.


 Preservation Advocacy Workshop

Advocating for historic resources takes many forms at different levels. This overview will provide information on federal and state funding for historic preservation, grassroots efforts to maintain funding and uphold federal legislation, and how it all trickles down to your community. Focused specifically on Historic Preservation Commissions, this workshop will review the role of Historic Preservation Commissions as advocates for preservation; how to best work with community preservation advocates and developing a unified advocacy strategy. Please see our website for the full workshop agenda.

This FREE workshop will take place at the historic Marshall House at Fort Vancouver on May 15 from 9am-2:30pm. Although this is a free workshop we ask you to please register so we can have an accurate total of attendees.

Retail Market Analysis Workshop

Many communities find the downtown market study vexing - why even do one? What is the Economic Restructuring Committee supposed to do with all these numbers when it is done? What does the market study tell you about the other three Main Street Committees? This workshop will take you through PRACTICAL ways to use your market data to foster a more dynamic downtown from more targeted promotions and marketing, to creating a retail micro-enterprise project. We will explore ways that the entire Main Street program can take advantage of the information gleaned from a market study and learn some of the “tricks of the trade” that market analysts know that you need to know yourself. Even if you haven’t “run the numbers,” this session will teach you some hands-on tips on how to understand the economics of downtown.

Tripp Muldrow, Arnett Muldrow & Associates

Workshop will take place at the Hilton Vancouver from 2pm-4pm at a cost of $20.
