What is Connect Communities?
Downtown’s and urban commercial districts play an important role in their communities and in Wisconsin’s overall economy, functioning not only as prominent employment and business centers, but often standing as the historic foundation of the communities they serve. They are also usually the meeting places for the community. The communities and their business districts have changed dramatically over the years, and some downtown’s need a boost or maybe a complete management system to lead the turnaround. Connect Communities is a way of offering resources and networking opportunities to local leaders and members of the community interested in revitalizing their downtown’s.
