Concerned citizens should attend the NRV Livability Initiative Kick-Off Summit

The Floyd Chamber of Commerce hs sent out an invitation to the NRV Livability Initiative Kick-Off Summit to be held on August 11 at Claytor Lake State Park in Dublin, VA 24084.

The NRV Livability Initiative is a three-year regional planning process to help citizens build a collective vision for our future.

I have had concerns about the goals of the NRV Livability Initiative based on materials I have read from outside sources. I think it is only fair that I should avail myself of the opportunity to participate in the ongoing planning process and get the facts for myself.

I plan on attending and participating with the other business owners who were invited and seeing what we can accomplish to enhance our economic competitiveness.

I am also interested in learning what the concensus of opinion is on enhancing and safeguarding the things we value most in our community.

I hope to see what can be accomplished.

Here is the invitation:

Let's plan for our community…as a community!

  • How can we enhance our economic competitiveness?
  • What kinds of housing choices do we want?
  • What kinds of transportation options do we prefer?
  • Can we reduce the cost of housing and transportation?
  • How can we enhance and safeguard the things we value most in our community?
