Downtown Summit

by @ 9:51 am. Filed under Current Events

Tomorrow (Wednesday, January 24, 2007) is the first of three “Downtown Summits” sponsored by the city of Lowell. Beginning at 8 a.m. at the Doubletree Riverfront Hotel, this summit is expected to bring together more than one hundred residents, business representatives and government officials with the the intent to “generate enthusiasm, stimulate involvement and provide an opportunity to hear suggestions and ask questions on a wide variety of issues that concern those who live, work and play Downtown.” The keynote speaker for this session is Teresa Lynch, a Senior Program Associate of the National Main Street Center of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The Main Street Center strives to assist urban communities in combining historic preservation with “grass-roots based economic development.” As an added bonus, the city of Lowell is supposed to introduce its new economic development director at the summit. Everyone is welcome to attend, but since seating is limited you are supposed to first call Chris Samaras at 978-446-7150 to register. During the past five years, downtown Lowell has undergone a transformation unrivaled in any time in its prior existance. The conversion from an office environment to what is essentially a bedroom community of residential condominiums with ancillary businesses has totally changed the face of Lowell’s core. Getting the stake-holders together to talk about how this all is supposed to work will certainly be time well spent.
