Landmark Columbus invites community to get-together with visiting mayors

Landmark Columbus is inviting city residents to a get-together with mayors participating in this week’s Mayors Institute on City Design Regional Session, with a chance to learn about their communication strategies with their communities through a panel discussion.

The event, called “Mayors, Media and Design” will be from 5:30 to 7:15 p.m. Thursday at Upland Columbus Pump House, 148 Lindsey St.

Co-sponsored by The Republic, the free event is about the visiting mayors and city leaders each talking about how they communicate and connect with their communities in the context of a quickly evolving media landscape, said Richard McCoy, who leads Landmark Columbus.

The panel discussion will be moderated by AIM Media Group Vice President and Group Publisher Bud Hunt, McCoy said.

In addition to exploring how the visiting mayors interact with their communities through media, the event offers a relaxed atmosphere for conversation about Columbus and the similar-sized cities represented by the participants, McCoy said.
