During its 62nd Annual Conference and Tradeshow in Atlanta this week, the International Downtown Association recognized Town Green District with a Certificate of Merit award for its work and initiatives related to Economic and Business Development.
The project, “Data: An Innovative Way to Convey a Compelling Success Story,” was among 10 qualified entries in the category of Economic and Business Development. This category features projects and initiatives which deliver successful programs and strategies that have recruited new businesses or improved retention efforts in downtown, recruit new sectors of the economy to downtown, and/or create or enhance economic development efforts through creative financing, unique operating strategies, or public-private partnerships.
Town Green’s project received the IDA Certificate of Merit for conducting best practice work in our industry of urban place management,” said David Downey, IDA President and CEO. “The Data Project is a shining example of excellent downtown management delivering real value to the city.”
