If you love New Buffalo, save the evening of November 19, 2014 for a unique opportunity to help create a vision of your hometown’s future.
Peter Kageyama, an internationally-known urban strategist and author of “For the Love of Cities,” will lead a workshop to encourage residents and leaders to embrace their relationship with the New Buffalo area and create a common vision for the area’s future.
The workshop, called “For the Love of New Buffalo,” will take place from 6 pm to 9 pm at New Buffalo Area High School at 1112 E. Clay Street. The evening will focus on things people love about New Buffalo area and the process of creating a “lovable community” that makes people feel engaged in a relationship with their hometown. Studies have found that passionate and loyal citizens who feel an emotional attachment to their communities create a strong environment for economic growth and sense of well-being.
Whether your love is for the beach and lake, the schools, the shops, the restaurants, the environment, or the artistic opportunities, this workshop will help New Buffalo continue to grow by encouraging energy and enthusiasm for entrepreneurship and sustainable economic opportunities and helping to empower collaborative relationships between the area’s organizations, residents and business community.
The workshop is being presented by the New Buffalo Downtown Development Authority, through a grant from the Pokagon Fund.
The workshop is free, but space is limited. If you would like to attend, please RSVP at info@newbuffaloDDA.org before Nov 18th.
