Economic Development Committee Update: We are continually working to keep the Slate Belt commercial property inventory list up to date. If you have a listing or know of a private listing, please send in your fact sheets. The committee is working with Northampton County to apply for a grant that’s main focus will be broadband. In the past few months the committee has been gathering information on the top priorities of the area and answering the question “what do you perceive as the top challenges that hinder economic development” Broadband cam in first, then other were infrastructure, marketing, vacant building, tourism regional zoning, streetscape/traffic improvement along the 512 corridor and more. We will begin to research deeper into these areas with the hope to have put a plan together by the end of the year. Our next committee meeting is May 19th, 8 am at the chamber office. Anyone is welcome to join us.
