Student Researchers: Jennifer Beavers '12, Kelly Biggs '12, Lyndsey Hicks '12, Samantha Tripoli '12, Cara Walden '12
Community Partners: Jeff Henderson and Jacqueline Augustine, Centennial Center Leaders in Residence
Faculty Advisor: Professor Jack Harris

Researchers took a three-pronged approach to the project to revitalize Geneva’s downtown district: understanding what Geneva’s Downtown Improvement District has proposed and why; surveying what other communities comparable to Geneva have done to revitalize their respective downtown districts; and interviewing key informants in the Geneva community to understand what has brought them to Geneva and kept them here.
