PRESCOTT, Ariz. - Oct. 13, 2013 - PRLog -- The Arizona Downtown Alliance will hold a community forum, “Downtown & Neighborhood Revitalization – Together We Can,” on Thursday, November 7 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hassayampa Inn in downtown Prescott. Organized by the Alliance and statewide and local partners, the event is free to individuals and organizations involved in downtown and neighborhood revitalization initiatives.

"Across the nation, historic downtowns, traditional business districts, and neighborhood commercial nodes are fast becoming a key component in a community’s overall economic and quality of life approach," said Jim McPherson, board president of the Arizona Preservation Foundation and one of the forum's organizers. "These traditional commercial areas in a city, town, or county provide small business start-ups, shopping, and dining choices; contribute to the character of the community; drive tourism; and most importantly foster a sense of place for residents."

During the presentation participants will have time to network with other northern Arizona communities dealing with similar issues, begin to draft a roadmap of how their community can strengthen their own revitalization efforts, and confer with subject matter experts.

"We are pleased to partner with the Arizona Downtown Alliance, Arizona State Historic Preservation Office, Arizona Preservation Foundation, and Local First Arizona on this community forum," said Kendall Jaspers, director of the Prescott Downtown Partnership. "Here in Prescott, the saying 'collaboration is key' rings true when it comes to supporting a successful downtown revitalization approach. Together we're working to create a stronger, more viable commercial district that is a destination on its own."

To RSVP, email azdowntownalliance@gmail.com or call Jennifer Evans at 602-327-2385 or Lani Lott at 602-738-8381.
