Transforming the relationship that the Town of Basalt has with its riverfront is an amazing example of using public development to inspire downtown vitality.
Join us for a walk through the project as we describe how to take a unique aspect of the community, such as its riverfront opportunity, and celebrate it.
We will explore the value of open space within downtown communities and how they can become economic drivers and branded experiences to draw people and businesses to the community core.
