MAIN STREET FORUM IN LIBERTY

Registration Fee Waived for Sullivan Renaissance Volunteers

October 9, 2008

LIBERTY – Main Street revitalization experts from across New YorkState will converge in the Village of Liberty on Monday, November 3 for the 12th Annual Main Street Forum entitled “Creating Sustainable Downtowns” at the LibertyMuseum and ArtsCenter.  The registration fee will be waived for a limited number of Sullivan Renaissance community volunteers to attend the full day conference.

 

Sullivan County Historian John Conway will talk about the history of Catskills’ Main Streets in a morning address that begins at 8:00 a.m.  The featured evening presentation is a panel discussion about Main Street redevelopment by members of the New York Main StreetAlliance, a cosponsor of the conference.

 

Over two dozen workshops are being offered on topics designed to help communities revitalize their downtown business districts.  Several workshops will focus specifically on available funding sources, while others will address: creating neighborhood playgrounds; using technology to enhance a Main Street program; preserving local neighborhood retail; urban design issues; and the importance of creating historic districts. 

 

Attendees will have an opportunity to meet one on one with representatives of several major funding agencies from around New YorkState who will be present.

 

Registration for the day, including lunch and dinner, is $105.  This fee will be waived for a limited number of community volunteers participating in Sullivan Renaissance projects on a first come, first served basis.  These participants will also be given complimentary registration to the 7th annual Preservation Conference on "Preserving Main Street Buildings" held on Sunday, November 2.

 

For a registration brochure and workshop schedule, contact Helen Budrock at 845-295-2462 or hbudrock@sullivanrenaissance.org.  To apply for the registration waiver, complete the registration and FAX it to Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2746.  Include a phone number or e-mail where you can be reached to inform you of the status of your waiver request.
