Today kicks off our first day on the Range. This morning, Chuck Marohn and Jason Schaefer will start out in Grand Rapids, MN.
In the morning, they'll meet with a local city administrator.
At noon, they'll host a roundtable discussion on The Role of Tourism and Arts in Bringing People Back to the Range at Old Central High School (10 NW 5th St, Grand Rapids, MN). We'll have a dynamic conversation with community doers involved in the arts, culture, outdoor recreation and tourism.
In the afternoon, Chuck will meet with a local city councilor to discuss the town's comprehensive plan.
Finally, the day finishes with a Curbside Chat at 6pm, open to the public. The event will be held in the Timberlake Lodge (144 Southeast 17th Street, Grand Rapids).
