Maggie begins 'Moving Forward'
MAGGIE VALLEY — After months of research, planning and countless conversations across the valley, Maggie is about to move forward. At least that's the hope.
The first "Moving Maggie Forward" meeting, open to the town's business leaders, is slated for 5 p.m. this Thursday at town hall.
As Mayor Ron DeSimone put it, "Maggie Valley needs to come together."
He believes the town's first-ever business plan, the goal of the "Moving Maggie Forward" push, might just be the ticket. DeSimone has been talking about a comprehensive, valley-wide plan pretty much since he was elected in November of 2011. He wishes things had gotten off the ground sooner, he admitted, but sounded excited about being at the beginning of something that could possibly make a huge difference to the town he calls home.
