Kent State Video Showcases Downtown Revitalization

University videographers create montage on Kent's '$100 Million Facelift.'

Downtown Kent's "$100 Million Facelift" is showcased in a short video montage created by Kent State University's Communications and Marketing department.

Kent City Manager Dave Ruller liked the downtown revitalization progress video so much he was compelled to promote it in his Kent 360° blog.

Emily Vincent, director of media relations at Kent State, said the piece was created by the university's videographers.

"They create videos that we use on the www.kent.edu home page and our weekly employee newsletter. (The videos) change out each week," Vincent explained.

The video's promo reads, "With over $100 million in new construction, downtown Kent, Ohio, is currently undergoing a massive redevelopment. Projects in various stages of construction include the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center, the Kent Central Gateway, the Kent State University Esplanade Extension, Acorn Alley II and three additional commercial buildings that will house restaurants, stores and offices."

We need some national press on this amazing mix of public and private money -- large and small business and a great injection of life for our community for years to come.
