First Friday Means Business: Facts about The Renaissance Plan
Chamber members will have the opportunity to hear from Aiken City Manager, John Klimm, at First Friday Means Business Nov. 4. Klimm will share the facts regarding The Renaissance Plan with attendees.
“It is our responsibility to make certain that Aiken Chamber members are well-informed with facts on The Renaissance Plan,” said J. David Jameson, Aiken Chamber President/CEO.
The Renaissance Plan is a plan for the renewal and redevelopment of property in downtown Aiken. It was announced at a news conference Sep. 30 by Klimm.
“One thing that we learned on the Aspirational Cities Tour last September was that to get things done there has to be a group of well-informed business, government, civic and education leaders who are willing to act,” said Charlie Hartz, Aiken Chamber Board Chair.
Jameson added, “This project can become a keystone project like several projects that former Charleston Mayor Joe Riley mentioned recently at the Main Street speaker series kickoff. Once folks understand the plan, I believe they will see the City of Aiken as forward thinking and action oriented.”
In addition to Klimm’s presentation, there will be updates from the city, county, Chamber and this month’s First Friday Means Business sponsor South Company. Members who wish to register for the November First Friday Means Business should visit www.aikenchamber.net/firstfriday
