Ronceverte Main Street Begins Planning Process

 

On July 12th the Ronceverte Main Street Program held it’s 1st planning meeting to begin to develop strategic plans that will create the vision and work that will carry the organization and the community into the future. The planning process is supported by a grant that the program received from The West Virginia Community Development office to hire a consultant to guide the process. The consultant is Terrill Ellis, from Terrill Ellis and Associates. Ms. Ellis, a former Director of Main Street West Virginia, once herself a small business owner and helped lead the revitalization of the West Charleston community. Ms. Ellis also was instrumental in conducting some of the earliest studies of Ronceverte with the goal of helping our Main Street program plan the initial revitalization process of our town. Upon her recent return to Ronceverte Ms. Ellis commented that she was impressed to see how much has been done to improve the community and the continuing renovation and restoration work that is currently underway. We are honored to have Ms. Ellis helping us with the project and are confident that with her background and knowledge we will come away with a truly wonderful plan.

 

The next planning meeting will be held on Thursday August 2 , 2012-from 5:30-7:30 PM,  at the Main Street Volunteer Center, located next to AC/KC  Items (under the old bridge and across from the Ronceverte Post office). The Board and Staff of the Ronceverte Main Street program would like to invite anyone from the community who is interested in determining the direction that our organization moves to attend. Your input into this process is important to us and vital to successfully restore Ronceverte to its former glory  remember it takes a “Town to rebuild a Town” For more information, please contact our office at 304-647-3140.
