Design Academy - Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 27th & 28th - Harrisburg

Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

The design course tackles issues around physical Improvements and other design considerations. Topics that are highlighted involve the design committee's roles, elements of design, facade renovation programs, parking issues, and zoning. Both Main Street programs and Elm Street programs will benefit from further presentations on curb appeal for neighborhood revitalization and visual merchandising for downtown merchants.

The Community Revitalization Academy (CRA) is a series of five (5) two-day workshops designed to provide first year Main Street managers, Elm Street managers, and other interested revitalization professionals with intermediate level instruction based on the Four-Point Approach® of the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Program and the Five-Point Approach of the Pennsylvania Elm Street Program. While these two programs have slight variations in the nomenclature and certain program activities, there is a high degree of consistency in the training required to effectively and efficiently implement these programs.
