The June 20, Business Forum is a joint event between the East Town Business Partnership and the minneapolis downtown council. It will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at Ryan Companies – Millwright Building – 533 S 3rd St Suite 100. This month’s event is free, but please RSVP using Eventbrite.
What does it mean to be an inclusive downtown? What issues, trends and challenges affect our ability to make this real? What prevents us from being the kind of downtown that is welcoming and where social, personal, and economic aspirations are available to all? This joint forum with the mpls downtown council will unveil the results from the yearlong “Inclusive Downtown Think Tank” co-sponsored with the YMCA that set out to cast a bold new vision for an increasingly welcoming downtown.
