An intensive, interactive three-day experience, the workshop will be filled with educational sessions and exercises aimed to provide participants with advanced tools and strategies to address complex revitalization projects and initiatives through the lens of the refreshed Main Street Approach, with a strong emphasis on Economic Vitality.

The workshop will include instructional sessions led by an expert in the field and include hands-on projects and assignments in communities and commercial districts actively engaged in revitalization efforts in the Chattanooga area. Emphasizing the importance of partnerships and collaboration, this format provides a learning environment that draws upon the experience and expertise of both the instructors and the participants. Tours and networking activities will be offered throughout to enhance the participants’ overall learning experience.
