Kimberly Tiefenthaler of SBDC and Amy Pingel of ICCC’s Business Center are coordinating the programing offered to all those interested. They plan to get ideas of other programing interests for the remainder of the year. JM:MS encourages local businesses to take advantage of this opportunity for additional education.

Be a Part of the Arch

Community members are invited to come and learn more about Arch Alley, the north alley renovation project with artist David Williamson. Everyone interested is encouraged to attend one of the community workshops on Jan. 31 either at 2 p.m. or 7 p.m. at City Hall. David will lead the groups through collaboration for the third arch design representing the community. The Tower View Team wants all of your ideas for this collaborative piece of public art created by the public. The Tower View Team has designed one of the arches. Students from Greene County schools and Paton-Churdan schools have worked with David on the second arch. This is the time for the community involvement. Hope you can join us at either or both times!
