Regional Advisory Council

Hi everyone,

I have a message below from Virginia Savage, Manager of Main Street Initatives at Lehigh County. She has information on an important regional upcoming meeting. See the E-mail below for details!
--------------------
Hello Friends,

On behalf of the Borough Business Revitalization Program, I would like to invite you to join our Regional Advisory Council for the Borough Business Revitalization Program (BBRP) and Lehigh Valley’s Main and Elm Street Programs.

With this Council, we hope to work together on projects that will benefit all of the Valley’s Main Street and Elm Street programs while offering you the opportunity to also network with your peers to share ideas and experiences.

Our first meeting will be held Thursday, July 17 from 6:30-8:00p.m. at Northampton Area Community College’s Southside Campus (Fowler Family Center) on 511 East Third Avenue, Room 605.

The agenda thus far will include:
1) Objective for Council and your thoughts
2) Update on the BBRP program extension
3) Chamber Foundation
4) Treevitalize-FYI, DCNR selected the Lehigh Valley as a pilot region and we have the opportunity to request up to $200,000 for tree planting. Come out and here how we can work together to plant trees in the Lehigh Valley
5) Potential projects
6) Fa├žade program update
7) Report from Sara Hailstone, DCED
8) Future meeting dates

A light dinner (sandwiches and/or pizza) will be served.

We look forward to seeing you and sharing ideas!
Kindly RSVP to me by Monday, July 14 so that we may plan accordingly.


Thank you and have a wonderful holiday!
