Area residents take part in tour of city and Town Hall meeting

Randolph area residents took a tour around the community last week to get a close up view of the community. The tour included a stop at Randolph’s first TIF home. A crowd of over 65 later took part in the Randolph Community Town Hall Meeting.

RANDOLPH ­— The weather cooperated with a tour of the Randolph community last Thursday afternoon and the Town Hall meeting held in the evening.
Representatives from several federal agencies and Renaissance Planning consultants were in town to take part in the walking and bus tour and participate in the town hall meeting which was attended by close to 70 people.
During the workshop held on Friday, members of the Randolph City Council and the Planning Commission met with community residents, Grant Planning officials and Federal and State representatives to begin creating a new vision for the community.
Randolph had received a Technical Assistance Grant from the “Building Blocks and Making a Viable Difference” program that is being used to assist the community in identifying challenges and opportunities to facilitate growth.
The City of Randolph, home owners and businesses face distinct challenges due to being located in a floodplain.
