The Redevelopment Authority hosts Community Education Forums to discuss relevant issues related to redevelopment, economic development and other community-enhancing initiatives. In 2013, the Forum focused on answering the question "How Can our Community Sustain Innovators and Jobs?"
Forum Recap The Community Education Forum featured innovators and local start ups well as representatives from the Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County (CBICC), Penn State, nonprofits, and local and regional governments. Panel discussions highlighted opportunities for partnerships and collaboration that can spur further innovation and showcased resources available to individuals looking to start or grow a business or test an idea.
The event also included tours of soon-to launch initiatives and local start-ups that have grown into successful businesses and places for creativity.
