LET’S TALK ABOUT EX-E-CUTION

10:15 AM - 11:15 AM | OAK BALLROOM III | JESSICA MATHEWS

Great public spaces do not have to be design-heavy, multi-million dollar projects in the middle of a city center. Sometimes, the most exciting spaces are low-key, low-cost, and in overlooked locations. Small-scale projects can be some of the most effective ways to re-invigorate a community. These projects can, and often do, get off the ground while more long-range projects grind through the wheel of red tape.


NEWARK REVITALIZATION: A STORY OF A VISION & PARTNERSHIP THAT TRANSFORMED A LANDMARK COMMUNITY
10:15 AM - 11:15 AM | NEWORK SPACE| AARON DOMINI, FRED ERNEST, ROGER LOOMIS

Like many other historic communities around Ohio, Newark was faced with the costly undertaking of updating and maintaining aging infrastructure. As the City of Newark examined their need to update infrastructure, the city saw this as an opportunity not just to update, but to completely reimagine the look and function of their historic square to drive economic development and promote a sense of place.

This session will explore how the dynamic and strategic process led the community to develop a vision for what their downtown should become and look at how transportation improvements and pedestrian scaled design can combine to create a meaningful public space. In addition, it will outline the many projects that evolved on the momentum of the downtown upgrades such as new public spaces, private investment, and additional investments being made by the City of Newark.

How do design, preservation, and sense of place support a thriving downtown? Join veteran Main Street

directors Tom Starinsky and Matt Wiederhold, for a ground-breaking, super-duper-fun Design 101 overview.

The definition of “good design” is different from person to person and community to community, but we can

all agree that the sense of place of our downtowns is strongly correlated to a vibrant economy. This session

will examine how various aspects of design - from urban planning to historic preservation, infill construction

and adaptive reuse, and community legacy to public art – impact all aspects of the Main Street Four Point

Approach.

DOWNTOWN NEWARK TOUR

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM | NEWORK SPACE | AARON DOMINI, FRED ERNEST, & ROGER LOOMIS

Platted on the late 18th century Harrisonburg city plan, Newark’s built environment contains a wealth of

buildings that reflect its historic growth as a commercial, industrial, governmental, and transportation

center. Tracing this heritage from the canal era heyday to post-WWII development, join Newark native,

Nathalie Wright, for a walking tour that explores the downtown’s architectural gems from the mid-1800s to

Mid-Century Modern. The tour will also include an overview of the city’s rich history. And, maybe a few

personal anecdotes thrown in...
