The IDA is working hand in hand with the County to push forward economic projects. The IDA is working with community leaders and volunteers on a number of projects to create more opportunities our citizens.
The IDA Board of Directors is made up of citizens from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Each member brings his or her own individual perspective to our work. Our board has embraced Vision 2035 not only with our words but also with our actions. Committees have been formed, communication has been improved and finances and procedures are being reviewed. We are working side by side with County Economic Development to find good business partners and to enhance and encourage those that are already here.
The IDA works for you. We invite public comment and interaction. You have a say and your opinions matter. You also have a responsibility to improve our County. Shop local; eat local, brag a lot about all we have. Our local restaurants have great selections. Encourage and support the folks who have dedicated their time and money to giving you a place to eat. Get your hair done locally; we have high quality beauty shops and barbers. The county has great grocery stores, hardware stores, and some of the best barbecue available anywhere. If you own a business do a good job. Keep regular hours, thank your customers. As the Director of the IDA, I thank you for your time and your help. In the future you will be asked for input, help and guidance to move us forward. Progress will take time, it will take cooperation and of course your prayers are always appreciated.
