Upstairs Downtown: A "Field Trip" of 2nd Floors in Downtown Kearney

In the last few years, several of Kearney’s above street-level spaces have attracted the attention of creative renovators who have the vision and resources to resurrect these amazing spaces and bring them back to life. This renewed energy is a testament to the emotional commitment to our urban heritage and reflect the pent-up demand for walkable, vibrant places in which to live and work. The appeal of the traditional downtowns is largely based on what can be summarized as walkable urbanism. “Upstairs Downtown” is a single afternoon Senior College class with limited enrollment that will allow participants tour to 3-4 of the current down-town Kearney upstairs renovation projects that range from ‘just-getting-started’ to “open-for-business”. We will meet and talk with the developers and tour their projects.

This class is limited to 15 participants.  Participants must be able to walk, climb stairs and move without assistance. Participants must sign a Waiver of Liability prior to participation.

DATE: Thursday, June 10 (1 day only)
TIME: 3:00 pm
LOCATION: Kearney Public Library South Platte Room
