There seem to be a lot of people with a lot of ideas for how we can make downtown an even more vibrant place to enjoy. Not all of these visions are large-scale, some are downright doable, and in fact, are being done. For the City’s next Green Bag Lunch-n-Learn the following presenters with share achievable visions in 5-minute Pecha Kucha presentations and then join a panel discussion on making downtown an even better place for hanging out, working and living.

SCAMP (Summer Community Art and Mural Program), Cascade Smartscape, and Urban Agriculture – Carrie McCausland, City of Colorado Springs

The lunch-n-learn runs over the noon lunch hour, from 12:11 to 12:49 p.m., at the City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada, in Suite 102. Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation. Those who come have the opportunity to win a door prize tote bag made from reused City banners.
