Join us for a Makers Town Hall

You’re invited to participate in a special community town hall on the evening of March 12 at Parkade Plaza, 601 Business Loop 70 West, Rm. 241.

The Loop CID is partnering with REDI on a new initiative to strengthen the Business Loop, reinvest in our spaces, and support more small-scale manufacturing in Columbia. This project is funded by the Economic Development Administration (EDA), and will bring national NGO, Smart Growth America, and consultants from Recast City LLC to our community.

This team of experts is coming to town in March and will help us create a strategy to leverage our existing makers as a way to revitalize The Loop and provide more economic opportunity for future business owners.

This town hall will focus on meeting with business owners and other community leaders like you to make sure our team understands what we need to make this project a success.

The town hall has two components:

6:00 – 7:00 pm – Presentation to the general public (including property owners, funders, and developers).

7:00 – 8:00 pm – Breakout session with local makers, manufacturers, and producers.

We hope you will be available to attend and share your thoughts with our team.
