Annual Fall Forum Luncheon
2014 Speaker: Donovan Rypkema
Friday, October 24th, noon to 1:30
The Fall Forum this year will bring us full circle from our origins in protecting archeological sites to our current work of bringing vitality to historic neighborhoods. Internationally known economist, Donovan Rypkema, will present his ground-breaking work on data driven neighborhood revitalization. Mr. Rypkema and his team at PlaceEconomics are applying their mapping tools in Walnut Hills. This CPA sponsored project will identify strategies for revitalization based on extensive data collection and mapping.

Donovan Rypkema is a highly respected economist and an inspiring speaker.
The luncheon will be held at the Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel’s Hall of Mirrors from noon-1:30 p.m. Donovan Rypkema, a principal at PlaceEconomics, will be the luncheon’s keynote speaker. Tickets are $40 and $60 and are available below.
