Geographer hosts workshop in Russell to enhance community's streetscape and foster economic development

By Jeffrey S. Smith

Jeffrey Smith, associate professor of geography, hosted a workshop in Russell on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The five-hour event helped city officials identify ways to enhance the community's character of place, develop a theme for their streetscape and promote economic development. It was a wonderful opportunity to apply the theoretical principles that drive Smith's current research, which is to place attachment and sense of community.
