Myrtle Creek Continues to Move Forward on the Road to Economic Vitality

Representatives from the City of Myrtle Creek, the Myrtle Creek-Tri City Area Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses have been collaborating to increase the area's economic vitality through RDI's Rural Economic Vitality Roadmap program. When the process first began last spring, the community chose to focus on beautifying downtown and marketing the town as a nice place to live and visit.
 
Last week, approximately 20 people met at City Hall to reflect on their successes and to plan for the next three months of the Roadmap process. RDI's Director of Rural Economic Vitality reminded the group of all they have accomplished as a community. "The goal of the roadmap is to give you a sense of engagement and bring people to work together with multiple organizations.”
 
Committees that have formed as a result of the process are dedicated to beautifying downtown and promoting the area's parks. In the near future, the community plans to install new street signs, meet with property owners and investors, and help clean up and improve buildings on Spirit Day, May 13.
