Community Investment Committee meets at City Hall

2019-03-19 - City Hall, 116 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ann Marie Austin.
An enthusiastic group of Columbians responded to the new Mayor's call for a committee of residents that focuses solely on how to make our city a better place to live and work in the future -- a sort of think tank. It's a place to talk about things observed in passing through town and begin to get questions researched and possible answers discovered. Ideas so far in the first three meetings have been discussed around buildings, starting with empty and unsafe places around the public square, and speed limit enforcement to improve safety downtown. In the meeting Monday, March 18, 2019 were, front row, from left: City of Columbia Mayor Pam Hoots, citizen volunteer and sidewalk improvement leader Mary Anne Loy, Adair Middle School volunteer Brody Blair, and city council member Linda Waggener, and Nanwood Market owner Sandy Conover. In back, from left, were: Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ellen Zornes, Rogers Trucking Company co-owner Chuck Rogers, Golden Rule Wilson realtor Elliott Burton, Columbia Attorney Dustin Warren, Nanwood Market co-owner Luci Irvin, citizen volunteer Richard Phelps and Libby's Gift Boutique co-owner Billy Joe Fudge. Questions and ideas are invited.
