Event description

Description

As a component of VISTA 2025 (Chester County's economic development strategy), the Urban Centers Forum is a call to action to the 16 urban centers to learn about and discuss tourism in urban centers related to breweries and tasting rooms, farm markets and food trucks, and short-term rentals ("Airbnb"). The Chester County Department of Community Development, Chester County Planning Commission, and the Chester County Economic Development Council host Urban Centers Forums to provide information and education to address challenges facing our urban centers as well as opportunities for open discussion, shared learning, and networking.

Join us on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, for this year's Urban Centers Forum regarding “Your Town as a Destination” related to the topics listed above. The forum will be held from 5:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. at Victory Parkesburg, 3127 Lower Valley Road, Parkesburg, PA 19365.

This is a free event open to municipal officials, staff, and consultants of Chester County urban centers on behalf of the Chester County Commissioners.
