Webinar on Civic Capacity: Building the Foundation for Revitalization

Legacy city revitalization is no small task; it requires a shared vision, calculated risk-taking and the ability to carry out a plan. The Greater Ohio Policy Center has identified robust, collaborative, and effective civic capacity as a standout strategy that has consistently proven essential in helping communities of all sizes, but especially smaller legacy cities, stabilize and thrive. Communities with the ability to identify and confront challenges are able to more successfully carry out other proven strategies for community revitalization.

In conjunction with J.P. Morgan Chase, Greater Ohio Policy Center is hosting a free webinar to share concrete steps stakeholders can take to strengthen local civic capacity and leverage it for impact in their community. The webinar will bring together experts in local government, finance, and community development to share strategies for success.

This webinar will prove useful for individuals in community organizations, local government, community lending, philanthropy or anyone else who is interested in urban revitalization.
