WITF/ Harrisburg — A dialogue is under way that could lead to a “Blueprint for Prosperity” for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The concept, which has been put to use in other cities across the country, involves engaging so-called “anchor institutions” in economic revitalization efforts.
The idea is to gather a diverse set of community leaders and help them identify areas — like education, job creation and health care — where they can work together for improvement.
WITF public television in Pennsylvania — as a part of Blueprint America — plays host to the first conversation on revitalizing the center region of the state.
Panelists include Harrisburg University President Dr. Mel Schiavelli, Jacksonville Florida’s Blueprint for Prosperity original manager Dr. Jarik Conrad, and CEOs for Cities President Carol Coletta.
