Community meeting aimed to spark vitality goals in Ontario

ONTARIO – A meeting scheduled for Monday, Oct. 17, at Four Rivers Cultural Center is aimed to harvest ideas and gather feedback regarding the ongoing effort to strengthen the Ontario’s economy and livability.

The Ontario Economic Vitality Community Meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. and goes until 11:30 a.m. The session is sponsored by Revitalize Ontario, the Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce and Rural Development Initiatives.

“We want to bring everyone back to the table and see where we are as far as projects the community would like and projects already happening,” said John Breidenbach, chamber president.

Breidenbach said the forum will focus on a “what we need to do development wise to bring in more vitality…like refurbish old buildings, cleaning up, removing blight. It is also to see who is doing what and what we need to do more of.”

The vitality sessions once were a yearly event but the Covid pandemic put the meetings on ice, said Breidenbach. The last session, he said, was in 2019.
