The Ely Times

Since the presentation by  consultant Roger Brooks last Friday, the City of Ely is taking a very proactive approach and moving forward to find ways to bring revitalization of downtown Ely to a reality.

They are looking for any interested residents to be a part of three different action teams. These teams will be formed to allow for quicker progress in reaching goals.

They are asking that residents choose an action team or two, that matches their interests to serve on. Each item will review the suggestions made by Brooks, plus add additional ideas to create a short-term and long-term action plan.

Brooks commented that 85 of the 87 suggestions could be accomplished for less than $10,000 total.
