Fresh minds promote county

Published 6:23 pm Tuesday, April 24, 2012

If you don’t already suscribe to reImagine Polk: the Polk County Economic Development and Tourism Commission’s monthly e-newsletter, you should definitely get connected (email and discover more about what our refreshed economic development group is doing to promote our county.
And it sounds like the commission has been busy.
The commission has sent out requests for proposals to expand and update websites for both economic development and travel and tourism. County vans used for transportation outside county boundaries will soon tout county accolades such as being named the No. 1 “Best Place to Raise Kids in N.C.,” the “4th Best Equestrian Area in the U.S.” and one of the “Best Rural Places in America to Live.”
It’s refreshing to see ideas in motion. If you want to know more, you can also attend their meetings held at the First Peak Center, corner of Mills and Walker Streets in Columbus on the last Wednesday each month.
Meetings are open to citizens.
