Candice Bernier from the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns made a presentation to the Knox City Council last week concerning the downtown area. She talked about creating a five year plan for the downtown portion of the city.
One person who was excited with the presentation, and looks forward to assisting in getting the project off the ground, is Debbie Mix, the Executive Director of the Greater Starke County Chamber of Commerce. Bernier talked about involving every segment of the population in the decision making for improving the downtown. Mix said she looks forward to bringing the business segment into the planning process.
“Partnership and collaborating is key to any kind of project like this and it is my hope that I can bring the business entities of this together so we can all work as a group and I would love to be a part of this,” said Debbie Mix.
On another topic, Debbie Mix talked about the Chamber’s annual meeting coming up on Friday.
“It is November 18th, at 7:30 a.m., at the Henry F. Schricker Public Library. We’ll have some refreshments and all members are welcome to come. We’ll be providing everything that we’ve done, the Treasurer’s report, and how well we’ve done with our fundraisers and all of our finances. Our events have been very successful this year and I’m very excited about that. We make sure that all of our members are listed. We have 160 members and growing.”
