CNN Community Economic Development Roundtable Discussions

What does community economic development mean to you in your neighborhood? CNN is hosting a series roundtable dialogues for neighborhood, community, and business district leaders. This is an opportunity to share your ideas on community economic development where thriving neighborhood businesses contribute to healthy communities. In the recent roundtables we heard from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) and the Portland Development Commission (PDC) to discuss how we can create and build on opportunities to work together on equity and local prosperity. See you for more insightful conversations and advocacy!
