The Department of Housing and Community Development is pleased to present the 
Downtown and Historic Preservation Conference on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 in the City of Montpelier.  

This year marks 20 years of the State Downtown Program. The State House is an ideal location for the opening plenary as we reflect back on two decades of downtown revitalization and chart a new path for the future.

The keynote speaker is Ethan Kent, Senior Vice President, Project for Public Spaces. Project for Public Spaces is an international leader in placemaking, helping to improve public spaces and build strong communities.  Ethan will also lead a session on the Power of 10, a powerful tool for generating conversations to identify targeted placemaking efforts.  

Visit the conference website for more information about the program, registration and additional conference information.
