The town Economic Development Commission is pushing forward with its effort to identify priorities for future development in the center of town.
In a letter distributed this week, Co-Chairs Elizabeth Borden and Michael Selleck invited residents to participate in the planning process. They noted that the EDC has a mandate from the town Plan of Conservation and Development to encourage economic development and to attract more young people to town.
“Achieving these goals will require far more than any commission or committee can accomplish,” they wrote. “It will take all of us to support new and existing businesses in town and to welcome young…and make sure they have what they need to thrive.”
The EDC met with townspeople and business owners last month to discuss the issue and review a list of suggestions submitted earlier. A working meeting will be held February 29 at the Norfolk Hub to strategize about how best to accomplish the defined goals.
In the meantime, the EDC is asking residents to make additional suggestions by describing what they want to see in Norfolk. Ideas should be submitted by February 15 by clicking here. Residents can send as many ideas as they wish.
