HandMade in America is working with Bryson City as a part of its Small Towns program, which assists small towns in revitalization efforts.
A resource team with the nonprofit will visit Bryson City March 16 through March 18 to conduct individual and group interviews, and tour the town to collect information on the town’s assets and deficiencies. The information will be compiled into a report of recommendations on goals for improving the town. That report will be given to the mayor’s office to create an implementation strategy.
HandMade is seeking as much local participation as possible in gathering this information. Bryson City residents can attend a free, casual dinner Thursday, March 17 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Iron Skillet Restaurant. RSVP 828.488.3681.
