Brad Richardson Introduces the Community Development Committee

Hello, I’m Brad Richardson.  Chair of HCU’s Community Development Subcommittee.  Our group is working to address the strategic goals related to community development from the Hardin County Vision Project.  This includes such things as the possible formation of a “powerhouse” economic development entity which will represent Hardin County and address new sources of funding for such work.

Over the past several months, we’ve visited communities in Tennessee and Mississippi that have successfully established such entities and are realizing the positive impacts that come from a unified approach to business attraction.

In the coming weeks and months, we’ll share more information with you on our visits and observations at each location.

Other strategic goals of the subcommittee are being addressed via other working groups such as the Hardin YMCA Steering Committee ( www.facebook.com/ymcahardin).  Work is also underway to capitalize on the economic development benefits available through the expanded sales of alcohol.  Look for news about a separate group working on this initiative in the coming weeks.

Visit the Community Development Committee page for a listing of our committee members.

We look forward to sharing our work with you and hearing from you.

The HCU Web site is intentionally built to be interactive so let me encourage you to join in on the conversation and regularly post comments.  For starters, the community development subcommittee would like to hear from you.  What types of businesses and employers would you like to see come to Hardin County?
