Clallam EDC sets ‘town hall’ meetings
The Clallam Economic Development Corporation has announced an opportunity for Sequim area residents to take part in a local Town Hall Meeting, a discussion in support of local economic vitality, set for 4-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 26, at the Sequim Transit Center meeting room, 190 W. Cedar St.
“The Clallam EDC, a community-based nonprofit association, has a long history of supporting Clallam County businesses and job growth,” said EDC Executive Director Bob Schroeter. “But we want to do more. With that goal in mind, we are traveling throughout the county, holding Clallam EDC Town Hall meetings. It’s an occasion for us to learn about opportunities for economic development in our local area from those on the ‘front lines.’”
The goal, Schroeter said, is to examine what residents see as economic development opportunities here in Clallam County and what role they envision Clallam EDC taking in those efforts. A second town hall meeting is set for July 27 at the Clallam County commissioners meeting room, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. The first meeting was held in Forks on July 20. Call 509-701-3881 for more information.
