Downtown and Historic Preservation Conference
The Department of Housing and Community Development presents the Downtown and Historic Preservation Conference on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at the Barrett Center for the Arts in White River Junction. The event is made possible by a partnership with Northern Stage, Preservation Trust of Vermont, and the Town of Hartford. The conference will highlight White River Junction's successful revival by bringing new housing, businesses, and jobs downtown. This year’s conference features nationally recognized keynote speaker Joe Minicozzi, who has done the math that proves investing in downtowns not only improves our quality of life and economy, but saves taxpayer dollars. In addition to the conference sessions and tours, we are providing ample time to network and a reception immediately following the conference. Registration includes a full day of sessions and tours, light breakfast, lunch, and appetizers at the reception. Please visit the Downtown and Historic Preservation Conference webpage for more information about the sessions and to register for the conference.
