Community Conversations III - 9/22/08 - 7:30 PM

Two not-to-be-missed nationally recognized speakers together in one unique event!

The Economic Benefits of Community Character

Donovan Rypkema, Place Economics, Inc.
Pratt Cassity, University of Georgia Center for Urban Design and Preservation

Please join us for the third event in the Community Conversations series.

Our community character (the physical, natural, social and cultural elements of our city and its neighborhoods) and the strength of our economy are what consistently make Raleigh one of the ten best places to live in the country. Don Rypkema and Pratt Cassity, both national experts in urban design, historic preservation and economics, will discuss how our priorities for community design and preservation affect our city's economic future.

Continue the conversation with your friends and neighbors over coffee and dessert after the lecture.
