Tourism and economic development efforts are described as continuing for areas along Highway 6 in Daviess, Grundy, and Sullivan counties.

In that regard, meetings are scheduled November 2nd in Trenton.

Persons from each of those counties developed a promotion plan involving the Stronger Economies Together initiative. The plan is under review by federal officials in Washington D.C. in hopes that it will qualify for a $5,000 grant to legally form a regional partnership for the local group.

The morning meeting November 2nd begins at 10 o’clock with a presentation from a representative of the Old Trails Region that conducted efforts similar to the Green Hills group. Donna Brown, a coordinator is expected to discuss efforts and successes of the Old Trails Region. Its website shows offices in Lexington, Higginsville, Concordia, Marshall, and Arrow Rock.

At 1:30 the same day, the local three county delegation will receive asset mapping and inventory training from University Extension representatives.

Both sessions on November 2nd will be at the office of Green Hills Regional Planning Commission, 11-04 Main, in Trenton. Persons planning to attend are asked to make reservations with Jackie Soptic at the planning commission office by October 31st to have a head count for seating and light refreshments.
