First off, I’d like to say thanks to all of our MPR business owners for their input on how we can improve business sales in our city. I meet frequently with both Dalton Rice, MPR City Manager, and the Directors of the MPR Economic Development Corporation (EDC) to share your concerns and suggestions on how to grow our MPR economy without losing our nature based small town feel.
City Comprehensive Plan– results should be available to the public this month. We’ll see if our residents are in favor of a vibrant business community. Fingers crossed in favor of supporting planned economic development. You still have time to complete the survey (closes Monday, January 23 @ Midnight. Even if you are a one issue voter, take the time to answer that one question on the survey. Here’s the link..

2nd Wednesday Business Network Round tables/Socials (2nd Wednesday- 6-7 PM, Sol de Jalisco). I’m no longer going to hold the monthly in person get-togethers, but I want to continue to have a place to “share business solutions directly related to MPR”.
(If you still have 2nd Wednesday evenings free, why not think of joining the library volunteers for the monthly meeting?)

MPR Economic Development Corporation- I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but I have volunteered to serve as President of the MPR EDC. My goal is MPR entrepreneurship. As you know we have challenges doing business in MPR (no sewer in the commercial district etc.), but that shouldn’t stop us from building a vibrant business community! The EDC is managed by a 7 member Board of Directors. We meet once a month, 3rd Thursday from 11:30 AM to 1 PM at the MPR Community Center. Currently we have an opening on the Board. If you’d like to apply, follow the link for the Director Application.
