Commissioner Mike Cella will be updating us on Gateway to Clay and the College Drive Initiative to improve the county.
Gateway to Clay - Wells Road is the corridor many travel through when entering Clay County, the Gateway to Clay. Residents and visitors should have a great first impression and want to make Wells Road, and the rest of the county, their travel, entertainment, and dining destination.
College Drive Initiative - Community leaders note the distinctive quality of College Drive as home to several nonprofit organizations, residential neighborhoods and commercial enterprises. Could College Drive become more than a thoroughfare? Would it be possible to create a “main street vibe?” What if College Drive became a destination for enjoyment as well as a locale for human care and post-secondary education?
