HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - The third discussion of "Remembering Place" at JMU wrapped up the series, changing the focus from talking about the history of downtown to how to progress into the future.
The event was held at JMU to unify the college and community, with the discussion including neighbors, local leaders and Harrisonburg officials. After the panel discussions, participants were divided into groups and discussed topics of local interest, such as public progress and development.
"We want to build a better relationship between campus and community, and we know that campus is part of the community and so bring together both," said Michael Trocchia, JMuse Café chair and adjunct lecturer.
