THE FUTURE OF SOCIABILITY: LIFE MAY NEVER RETURN TO HOW WE REMEMBER IT
While COVID-19 defines 2020, close behind are racial justice and political divisions changing cultural norms and societal expectations.
Among the most significant challenges will be closing the gap between social distance and social connections as people emerge from cocoon life to return to normal social relations.
Many dining, entertainment and event businesses and those suppliers and services supporting them may not survive, some are burdened with debt and obligations, while many businesses have grown to support home socializing and entertainment.
RHI SERVICES BRING SAFETY, VIBRANCY AND PROVEN SOLUTIONS for sociability
Commercial offices, innovative technology companies, conventions, tourism, residential development and other magnets for economic growth all depend upon a safe and vibrant nightlife and social economy.
At the same time, strained budgets of cities and counties, vacant storefronts, offices and migration from downtown residential living combine to add even more challenges as a new and hopeful decade begins.
Sociability that is well planned and managed is an asset to your city. Vibrant social options like bars, restaurants, live music venues and night clubs attract students, tourists and entrepreneurs. They create jobs and drive the economic (re)development of a business district or downtown.
RHI HAS ASSISTED OVER 80 CITIES INVESTING IN THEIR SOCIAL ECONOMY
RHI Services guide and empower communities to see beyond barriers to harness the economic value of nightlife and create a holistic plan for the nighttime economy and risk management.
Our community-based process is designed with inclusion, consensus and on-site observations. We conduct a day, evening and late-night tour to witness your hospitality zone firsthand. Then, we help you determine how best to move forward with a plan of action, tapping the expertise of seasoned veterans in policy, public safety, hospitality management, district planning and management both within your city and part of RHI's team.
THE sociable city ASSESSMENT BUILDS ACTION TEAMS FOR PROGRESS
THE SOCIABLE CITY ASSESSMENT OBJECTIVES
Whether planning to add a nightlife district, enhance one that exists or manage one out of control, RHI's Sociable City Assessment Process objectives include:
Downtown social districts often serve as the melting pot of a city and region’s diversity. As more areas are revitalized and made clean and safe, the more people of all generations want to come for work, shopping and socializing. Successful districts can be a magnet for people at all times of day.
RHI’s process convenes and facilitates an alliance of key stakeholders to improve safety, vibrancy and sustainability.
BUILDING A TRANSFORMATION TEAM TO GUIDE THE PROCESS OF CHANGE
The invitational process seeks to assure a balance of perspectives while maintaining a manageable group size for active participation and contribution.
