Byhalia to unveil 20-year plan
After much work, Byhalia’s 20-year plan will be presented at the “Community and Chamber Celebration” on Thursday, Nov. 20.
The theme for the celebration is “Pride in the Past, Faith in the Future.”
There is no charge to attend this event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at The Flame, 2511 Church Street. Please mark the date and plan to attend. Spread the word with your co-workers, church members, friends and family.
A big attendance is needed to learn more about this very important project for the Town of Byhalia’s stakeholders.
Sarah Sawyer, executive director of the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce, said special thanks go to Mayor Scooter Dempsey and the aldermen for having the insight to see the need for updating the ordinances for future growth and infrastructure. Progressive and prosperous cities and towns have a plan.
“We hear that we must ‘make a plan and work your plan,’ ” Sawyer said.
The town plan will address potential population, development around the Highway 78 interchange, how the downtown and other historic areas are enhanced, how annexed land should be developed, the traffic burdens, cleaning up dilapidated areas, recreational parks and other development opportunities.
Bob Barber works with community planning and design. He said it is a fact that consistent application and administration of a sound planning program will improve significantly the quality of life.
“Don’t we all want that?” Sawyer said. “We will see you November 20.”
The program will also include presentation of the leader of the year and the chamber board member of the year, plus several other activities.
