“If businesses are not gravitating towards a community or if redevelopment is passing them by, city leaders, business owners and residents need to create a better strategy,” said Briesemeister. “Our book provides a blueprint that stakeholders can use to assure they are not skipping critical steps. Often times, city and civic leaders feel the need to seek immediate solutions to a crisis instead of focusing on long-term success. This is one of the most critical mistakes to avoid.”

The key steps outlined in the book pose hard questions and propose solutions that leaders must consider if a city is to prosper. The book also provides national and global case studies including the reinventions of Charleston, S.C.; Delray Beach and West Palm Beach in Florida; The Hague, Netherlands and Bilbao, Spain.

While geared towards city leadership, the book is equally essential for business owners, developers, civic leaders, stakeholders and residents active in their community and vested in their community’s future.

“There is no reinvention of a city, unless the private sector invests in the vision,” said Brown. “‘Reinventing Your City,’ provides business and community leaders with insights that will help them evaluate their potential and set the stage for a successful city of the future.”
