All residents are welcome and encouraged to partake in the planning for Action Teams during this meeting.
Brian Dalton, Mayor of the City of Dallas, had this to say about the Economic Roadmap process: “First, the RDI Roadmap experience was very successful here in Dallas. Attendance and enthusiasm are excellent and actually is growing over time…” He also said, “A number of important initiatives that were generated by that group have been pursued, with three very active action committees working on Community Marketing, Downtown Property Improvement and Business Development.”
Dallas’s Economic Vitality Roadmap is sponsored by the City of Dallas.
Economic Vitality Roadmap is a program of Rural Development Initiatives (RDI) that takes rural communities through a three-part process to create an action-oriented roadmap to economic success. The process includes an assessment, identification of key initiatives, and implementation. Through Roadmaps and other Rural Economic Vitality services, RDI’s staff helps rural communities take the road to community vitality.
