If you have followed the transition of the Pottstown Area Industrial Development (PAID) organization into the borough’s economic development engine then you should attend a public meeting at the Hill School Library, Thursday, April 28th at 6 p.m. The new board of directors will be introduced.
This is an important vehicle that will hopefully enable Pottstown to speak with a unified voice when presenting economic development goals and strategies. Having a consensus will help the borough receive grant money for projects.
Jason Bobst, Pottstown Borough Manager, will be the first President of the Board of Directors. The office of president will rotate every year between the borough, the school district and the Montgomery County Redevelopment Authority.
The first year is crucial because the new Executive Director will be hired. This person will be the point of contact and run the day-to-day operations of PAID.
The ULI recommendations will be used as a blue print for economic development by PAID’s Executive Director and the Board of Directors.
