Last Monday night at the Bank of Salem Courtesy Room, there were 34 business people and leaders in attendance at the second town hall meeting. A number of different businesses were represented from Salem and Dent County. They included bankers, accounting, real estate, manufacturing, distribution, assembling and new business startups. There was even interest from tourist businesses just outside of the county. Issues were more clearly identified at this meeting.  Individuals volunteered to address many of these issues and assume leadership roles. First, the Target Area was selected and it will be Highway 19 from Spring Creek North to Spring Creek South, extending to the new park for soccer fields, as well as 3rd, 4th,and 5th Streets Downtown. This helps focus the agenda by identifying the concentrated area of concern. Second, the Vision Statement was addressed by Connie Willman from the MRPC, and she will provide a draft statement for review. The focus will be to address issues that would revitalize the target area defined. Thirdly, individuals attending the meeting were divided into groups to write a situation statement, and objectives and were organized in the fields of Financial, Infrastructure, Beautification and Appearances, and Business Attraction and Expansion. A committee from those attending the meetings has being formed for each topic. Stan Podorski, Dustin Howard, and Mike Douglas have volunteered to provide the overall leadership for these Revitalization Efforts. Another meeting will be held at a later date that has yet to be announced.
