Main Street to conduct workshop in Holly Springs
Mississippi Main Street Association will host a planning charrette in Holly Springs on Nov. 17-19.
The charrette consists of a team of professionals working with Holly Springs citizens to develop a plan and vision for the future of the North Mississippi town.
The charrette will kick off Monday, Nov. 17, at 6 p.m. in the Eddie Lee Smith Multi-Purpose Building located at 235 North Memphis Street. A final presentation will be made on the evening of Wednesday, Nov 19.
The Holly Springs project is part of a program funded by a grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC). A total of 14 counties have been selected to participate in the program funded by ARC and/or the West Alabama-East Mississippi WIRED Initiative, including the Main Street communities of Holly Springs, Carthage and Water Valley.
Charrette is a French word that signifies work being done in front of the public and is an appropriate name for a community-driven initiative. The three-day program signifies a beginning rather than an end and will give a solid start to Holly Springs Main Street, a new program of the Mississippi Main Street Association.
For more information, contact Sam Agnew, MMSA Northern District director, at (662) 620-2533 or Clencie Cotton with Holly Springs Main Street at (662) 278-9459.
