02/25/14 - Storefront for Community Design

About this episode:
Storefront emerged in 2011 when Councilwoman Cynthia Newbille pushed to make home and business redesign accessible to residents in her district's historic neighborhoods. They now run four programs: architects and designers offer home update consulting; facilitators help communities develop a redevelopment plan at the grassroots level; community partners provide design education; and the MOB (Middle Of Broad) studio assists storefront revision with custom projects planned by VCU students.  Storefront is currently involved in ensuring community input for the City Stadium Project.

Guest speaker:
Ryan Rinn, Executive Director of Storefront
