North Chattanooga Summit 2013 To Focus On Economic Development, Quality Of Life

Monday, September 23, 2013

The Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce’s North Chattanooga Council is coordinating with the NorthShore Merchants Collective to organize the North Chattanooga Summit, an inaugural event co-hosted by Chattanooga City Councilmen Chip Henderson (District 1) and Jerry Mitchell (District 2).

The Summit will take place Oct. 2, from 5:30–7 p.m. at The INCubator, at 100 Cherokee Blvd.

Guests are invited to join the conversation, which will focus on economic development and quality of life issues in the North Chattanooga area. A panel of experts from the City of Chattanooga will discuss the following areas of interest:

·         Safety

·         Zoning

·         Traffic

·         Signage

·         Beautification 

“These issues are what North Shore residents care about,” said Councilman Mitchell. “We’ll be coming up with ideas on how to improve all those features of our community at the summit.”

Following the brief panel discussion, summit attendees will participate in roundtable discussions, where they will have the opportunity to voice their concerns and help identify solutions for improving the North Shore community. Residents and business owners from Districts 1 and 2 are encouraged to engage in direct dialogue with elected officials and neighbors during this portion of the event, which is devoted to identifying opportunities for the future of North Chattanooga.

“Government works best when we engage our citizens and respond to their needs,” said Councilman Henderson. “Through the North Chattanooga Summit, local government and local citizens will have the opportunity to work alongside one another in pursuit of a common goal – to continue making the North Shore a great place to live, work and play.”

I am pretty positive that I haven’t stepped foot in a library in the last 50 years. Between the ever-widening Internet, with all of its search engines and infinite resources, I have got about as much use for a library as I would if I read a book about a transgender person. I have neither the time or inclination. Be like trying to teach a pig to sing – the pig always get bored. ... (click for more)
