The Chisholm Trail Parkway, housing and downtown revitalization are among the topics to be discussed at the year’s first meeting of the Economic Development Steering Committee and Council.

The meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, in the GRISD Technology Center. 

“Since our last meeting on Dec. 12, the holidays have occupied most everyone`s time and energy,” said Chairman Larry P. Smith. “Now, we are into a new year and it is time to address what we can do to help make 2014 the best year ever for Glen Rose and Somervell County.”

Subjects to be discussed at the meeting include the Chisholm Trail Parkway, business and commercial projects, downtown, education, housing, industry and tourism. Committees devoted to some of the topics may make a report or give updates on activity since the last meeting.

“Remember, this is your organization and your input is essential,” Smith said. “Bring your ideas and suggestions so that we can develop a plan of action.”

The group will not meeting again until Thursday, Jan. 23, to allow time for progress on action items.
