Greenwood Economic Development Committee sets next meeting

Residents and stakeholders are invited to a meeting next Wednesday to fine tune economic development ideas.

The next meeting of the newly formed Greenwood Economic Development Committee has been scheduled.

It will be held at Greenwood City Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 6:30. “I feel it’s important to get as many out as we can to set the committee and assign tasks,” Mayor Nipper Kettle said in an email to stakeholders last week.

“We will have to make sure we get the word out to as many people we can reach and especially the ones who attended the strategic planning session.”

The city sponsored the planning session on Nov. 7 at McArthur Centre where possible goals were identified.

Next steps include determining who will be on the committee, who the committee will report to—i.e. council, prioritization of the projects that make sense to move forward with and determine what funds, if any, are required at this time.
