The Economic Development Authority of Claxton and Evans County hosted the first annual Community Economic Development Retreat on Thursday, April 16. Approximately 50 community leaders, elected officials and business representatives attended the retreat to discuss furthering economic development in Evans County.
The retreat was facilitated by EDA Director Michelle Pfeffer, Jenny Robbins, community development consultant with Georgia EMC, and Pat Merritt, community development consultant with Georgia EMC.
The goal of the retreat was to not only identify problem areas or weaknesses, but to provide solutions for those issues. “We want to be solution oriented. We want to be focused on not the problems necessarily, but what can we do to solve those problems,” Merritt said. “Where your focus is, that’s where your energy goes.”
