I attended the Wilmington town council hearing last Wednesday regarding the 1% proposal. It was very encouraging to witness a cohesive group of business owners and individuals adamantly support that the 1% is earmarked specifically for economic development.
Building and supporting a strong downtown Wilmington is a critical pillar of success for our Deerfield Valley. Having vibrant, sustainable shops and restaurants is critical to this beautiful gateway to our region. Up to this point, there’s been a significant volunteer effort, however, there hasn’t been the corresponding dollars needed to spend on marketing and advertising. If invested properly from this fund, coupled with the continued enthusiasm and tireless work of concerned business owners and leaders, we can make a difference and influence buying decisions into our valley over other well-marketed and funded options.
This is our time ... let’s go!
