Small Town Series:

Elkin, NC

JUNE 23  |  10 AM

What can we learn from small towns who have created successful projects that have economic benefits for the entire community? What is the “secret sauce” or key ingredients that any community can use to complete transformative projects?

 

In the Successful Small Town Series, we will tell the stories of communities and the projects that have catalyzed economic growth and development. We will provide the key ingredients to success and spur you to think about the potential transformative projects in your community.

Our first segment of the Series will feature Elkin, NC, a community with a population of 4,200, situated in the foothills of the Yadkin Valley Wine Region, one hour north of Charlotte. This segment will explore 3 of Elkin’s most transformative projects that were catalysts for downtown Economic Development over the past 10 years: The Reeves Theater, The Liberty Renovation, and the extensive trails system throughout town that connects outdoor enthusiasts to their Main Street.
