Recent Happenings in Downtown Marion
There’s a grassroots effort of members from HMRA, the Marion Chamber of Commerce, the Marion County Museum, the Marion County Healthcare Foundation, Marion County/City, the Downtown Business District and the Marion County School District focusing on a Marketing Strategy for the City of Marion. This group has currently defined 3 primary goals to focus on: Presentation, Discovery and Preservation. This group of committed individuals has been meeting since May and has developed a strategic plan for marketing the City of Marion. The group’s foundation is based on the City of Marion’s Master Plan developed in 2005 from a cross-section of Marionites. We’re planning a community unveiling of the Marketing Plan very soon. If you’d like to be a part of this project, please contact the HMRA or Marion Chamber office.
HMRA’s Music on the Square (Aug. 21) met Mother Nature and lost. Fear not, we feel the Marion Community’s momentum and rescheduled as soon as feasibly possible. Join us Friday, September 11 between 6:00p and 9:30p on the Courthouse Square sponsored by Anderson Brothers Bank! See you there!
You may have noticed one new lamppost banner at the corner of E. Dozier and Main Streets. HMRA is brainstorming on just the right banners to suit the image of Main Street Marion. More aesthetic improvements for downtown are on our radar. We can’t wait to get started and be noticed!
