Downtown Ord Special Meeting

with one comment

Courthouse4.jpgThe Ord Area Chamber of Commerce will be holding a special meeting Thursday, August 20th from 7:00-8:30a to discuss future plans and opportunities for our community core.

As part of that discussion, I’d like to address these key areas:

  • How have the downtown improvements affected your business?
  • What challenges impact your businesses’ bottom line the most?
  • What should the Chamber be doing to improve its value to your businesses in the downtown district?
  • What action needs to be taken to enhance the core of our community?

We will have a very brief analysis of the downtown improvement loan as well as a new microlending pool that provides financing for business improvements (including aesthetic improvement and property consolidation) for any and all business or property owners on major business thoroughfares in Valley County.

At the end of our powwow, we will design solutions and an action plan to enhance our opportunities and overcome our challenges.  Please RSVP by August, 13 2009 to:  calebpollard@frontiernet.net

Our August meeting will also serve as a kick-off for a monthly Chamber coffee connection with coffee and rolls provided.  As for the upcoming September coffee connection, our tentative plan will be to roll out our new website along with the promotional features that each of our downtown businesses will have opportunities to utilize.

Mark your calendars!
