annual-meeting-image-1016-resizeMark your calendars for Thursday, November 10 and plan to join Capital Crossroads and Discovery SIDs for their Annual Meeting and Awards at Columbus Metropolitan Library, 2nd Floor Reading Room.

This year’s event, Placemaking: Join Us to Get Inspired, features a keynote from Peter Kageyama, an internationally recognized community development strategist and author of several books, including For the Love of Cities: The Love Affair Between People and Their Places. Kageyama will talk about how community-driven placemaking bolsters both the economic and emotional value of a city.

Kageyama’s book was recognized by Planetizen in 2012 as a Top 10 Book in urban planning, design and development. In addition, he is the co-founder of the Creative Cities Summit, which brings citizens and practitioners together for an interdisciplinary conference focused on the idea of “the city.”

Capital Crossroads and Discovery SIDs will also present awards to community members for Aesthetic Contribution, Outstanding Service, Outstanding Achievement and Unsung Hero.

Capital Crossroads and Discovery SIDs are grateful to event sponsors Columbus Metropolitan Library, MKSK and Nationwide. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Kacey Brankamp at 614.591.4504 or for more information or to RSVP.
