Small-Scale Manufacturing on Main Street Webinar

December 4, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Small-scale production has emerged as a powerful way to tie opportunity to place, and it can fill a missing piece in downtown and community development efforts.

Small-scale production is a term that refers to all types of small businesses (1-30 employees) that produce tangible goods. This includes textiles, hardware, woodworking, metalworking and 3-D printing. It also includes hardware prototyping, consumer product design and prototyping, breweries and distilleries, and local food production and packaging.

Join Matt Wagner, vice president of revitalization programs with the National Main Street Center, for a webinar, to learn more about this topic and a new exciting pilot project for Virginia.Following the webinar, DHCD will be accepting requests for interest from communities interested in participating in a pilot program to evaluate and enhance the small-scale manufacturing opportunities within their commercial districts.
