Annual Fall Forum Luncheon

2014 Speaker:  Donovan Rypkema

CPA’s 19th  annual Fall Forum Luncheon will be on October 24 and promises to be an exciting event.

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. In his talk at the Hall of Mirrors he will present new ways to utilize the untapped value of historic buildings and show how they can be the foundation of great neighborhoods.  Examples from across the nation will be augmented with his current work in Walnut Hills.

The project in Walnut Hills is funded by Cincinnati Preservation Association with additional funding provided by the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Jr. Haile / US Bank Foundation and the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing.
