It’s hard to believe I’ve been mayor for over three years! My time thus far as mayor of our great town has confirmed what I have always thought: Fountain Inn is filled with great businesses and people. Our dedicated city employees, council members and citizens truly make this town a lovely place to call home.
Our downtown continues to grow, becoming an increasingly popular destination in the upstate. Our weekend concert series fills the streets each week with families from our community as well as our neighboring cities.
The Saturday farmers market has also provided our residents a chance to savor and explore local produce and craft. These are just a few of the many steps our city has taken toward achieving our goal of creating family-friendly entertainment and events for everyone to enjoy.
With our new 2016 Master Plan complete, we are excited to present a clear and attainable vision for the City of Fountain Inn. I personally enjoyed having our residents play such a large role in the creation of this plan. This level of community involvement helps every resident take ownership of the future goals of our city. The staff at city hall has worked tirelessly to complete this project, and I encourage everyone to look over our new master plan and get excited about the future of our town.
The growth of residential home sites and the construction of new schools prove that our city has something others want to be a part of. Though we have made great strides towards progress, our job is never done.
I would like to encourage all residents to continue to make a difference by shopping local and exploring the wonderful events and programs the city has to offer. Together, we can build, grow improve and watch our city flourish.
Thank you for all of your efforts to make Fountain Inn the “INN” Place to be!
