OR Humanities conversation: City Center
A City’s Center: Rethinking Downtown.
Friday, Sept. 27th, 6:30 pm
Historically, a city’s downtown core has been the community’s cultural and economic center, expressing shared values and aspirations. Today, however, many downtowns represent a community’s social and economic distress. Cities of all sizes are trying to revitalize their downtowns, but the qualities essential to this revitalization remain elusive.
This is the focus of “A City’s Center: Rethinking Downtown,” a free conversation with Nan Laurence, a senior planner for the City of Eugene.
