Downtown Feedback Forums

The Iowa Downtown Resource Center will offer several downtown forums in June to bring together community leaders interested in engaging in a discussion about their downtowns.  Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other downtown leaders and are encouraged to bring and share examples of successes in their downtown (photos of projects, marketing pieces, or other visual examples). 

The focus will be on downtown business development issues such as energizing entrepreneurs, business development and business succession. Come prepared to discuss specific questions relating to downtown business development issues available for download
