Event description

Description

Urban Renaissance is the second in a two-part speaker series intended to foster civic engagement in a lead-up to the General Plan Update. With a greater focus on Downtown Napa, speakers will engage the audience on topics such as the changing face of retail; walkable, bikeable, destination-rich cities; and mixed-use, density, and affordability in downtowns.

Doors Open at 2:30

2:45 – 3:00 Welcome and Opening Remarks

Jill Techel, Mayor, City of Napa

Gordon Feller, Moderator

3:00 – 4:00 Session 1: The New Retail

In this Amazon world of online shopping and experiential retail, where might we see the future of retail going? Where does that leave our brick-and-mortar development downtown? In this session, we discuss the trends and how we might prepare for The New Retail. Speakers: Jon Stine, Scott Stallard, Michael Berne, John Truchard, and Jason Scoggins

4:00 – 5:00 Session 2: Walkable, Bikeable, Destination-Rich Cities

As more people come back to the urban core, cities are experiencing a renaissance of sorts. Pedestrians and bicycles are becoming more prevalent and downtowns are catering to a more experience-rich audience. How might Downtown Napa change in light of these trends? Speakers: Gordon Huether, Justin Dragoo, Olivia Dodd, Edith Ramirez, and Christine Thomson

5:00 – 6:00 Session 3: Mixed-Use, Density, and Affordability in Downtowns

The urban experience is becoming more than a place to visit and work – it’s also a place to live. As people of varying income and socioeconomic statuses move to downtown to be in the center of all the action, what changes might we see in the mix of development? Can housing of various density and affordability co-exist with commercial development to create a thriving and vibrant downtown? Speakers: Janet Tam, Peter Coffey, Todd Zapolski, and Michael Holcomb

6:00 – 7:00 Network with speakers, guests, and colleagues
