The value of open space is often discussed in relation to its beauty, environmental benefits, and quality of life impacts - but have you ever considered its economic value? Join us for the final event in the Shaping Our Future Speaker Series: The Economic Benefits of Conservation and Open Space with keynote speaker, Jessica Sargent from the Trust for Public Land. Sargent's presentation will discuss how open space and parks provide real and tangible economic benefits to the local community and how this information can be used to successfully enhance public funds for land conservation, open space protection, and parks.
The first three sessions of the 2015 Our Upstate Vision Forum had specific focus on the issues of transportation, healthcare and economic vibrancy in local communities. The series looked at issues that are crucial as the region strives to be universally recognized as a leading place to live, learn, do business and raise a family.
While it is critical to look at areas where we must continue to work to make the Upstate an even better place for generations to come, it is also important that we take opportunities to recognize and understand some of the great things from our past and that are happening today in our region.
For the final Our Upstate Forum of 2015 we will celebrate some of the people, organizations and businesses that have been working for generations to make the Upstate a special place.
The forum will also include recognition of companies and organizations celebrating milestone anniversaries (20 years or more) in 2015. Ten at the Top will also announce the recipients of the 2015 ELEVATE UPSTATE Grants.
November 19, 2015 from 3:00PM-5:00PM
