North Judson Town Council members decided who would serve as their community representative for the local Stellar Executive Team when they met Tuesday night. Clerk-Treasurer Andrew Rowe had expressed an interest in representing the town and council members voted unanimously to allow him to serve in that capacity.
Starke County Economic Development Foundation Executive Director Larry Wickert was present at the meeting. He noted that one of Rowe’s responsibilities as the community liaison will be to attend a series of workshops that OCRA will be offering throughout the wintertime.
He also provided some information about an opportunity coming up next month that’s related to the Regional Stellar Communities initiative.
Wickert said that an asset mapping exercise will be held at the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center in Knox on Tuesday, October 9th from 6 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. This will be a chance for community members to assess all the existing assets within the county and develop plans for how to better utilize or expand on them.
