Multi-Jurisdictional REDI Meeting
In 2019, Rockbridge County, in conjunction with the Economic Development Committee for the Chamber of Commerce, applied for and received one of forty-eight USDA Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) grants issued to rural communities that are collaborating for economic growth in their regions.
The Committee then began work with Leslie Schaller, ACE Network’s consultant, to determine a strategic roadmap for economic prosperity in the region. This multijurisdictional meeting aims to present the Rockbridge Strategic Roadmap and the Rockbridge Outdoor strategic plan update. The Roadmap outlines recommendations for economic growth and quality of life improvements to advance economic opportunity for Rockbridge County, Lexington, and Buena Vista citizens. The Rockbridge Outdoor strategic plan update exemplifies our regional cooperation and ties into our Strategic Roadmap.
This meeting will be held in partnership with Lexington City Council and IDA, as well as Rockbridge County Board of Supervisors and EDA>
The meeting will be held at the Virginia Horse Center on September 20th at 5:30 PM.
