Georgia Main Street Training Calendar
Through training opportunities we learn advance ourselves as well as our community, through an exchange in ideas and by creating a universal language of common themes and concepts which we can build upon. Whether you are looking for the beginning courses that explain and share the basics of the Main Street Program to more, day-long intensive economic development trainings, we strive to share opportunities that make downtown development practices more applicable and successful in your own city. Please take a look at the calendar below and note upcoming opportunities throughout Georgia and nationally.
Downtown Design Bootcamp
An understanding and application of good downtown design is crucial to maintaining your city’s authentic character. It can also encourage your community to interact with downtown and further support thriving independent businesses, retailers, and restaurants. During this three-part virtual training, Randy Wilson, founder of Community Design Solutions, will lead participants through progressively challenging concepts and principles which will focus on sharpening design knowledge in the areas of historic architecture, urban design, art, and public spaces.
