As our country becomes more diverse, how can downtowns develop vibrant destinations while engaging multiple communities that comprise their populations? Levitt Foundation’s Sharon Yazowski led a timely panel with Lisa Wagner of @levittdayton, Talicia Richardson of @646downtown and Jamie Haack of @jmkac at this year’s #IDAVAN22. These nonprofit leaders from across the country presented proven strategies for inclusive placemaking that acknowledge and respect community dynamics, develop authentic partnerships, foster trust and engagement, and empower a range of voices in order to create equitable downtowns. #FromtheField
