BOONSBORO - The consultant making recommendations to the Town of Boonsboro about how to revitalize the downtown area will have a final public meeting with a town agency next week, town officials said during Monday's Boonsboro Town Council meeting.
Representatives of consultant Mary Means & Associates Inc. of Alexandria, Va., are expected to present the final draft of a written report to the Boonsboro Economic Development Commission at its meeting July 14 at 7 p.m. at Shafer Park Community Center, town officials said.
The commission members will go over the report and then take the commission's suggestions to the Boonsboro Town Council at a future meeting, Mayor Charles "Skip" Kauffman said.
The town has used its funds plus a $25,000 state grant to pay for a $49,100 contract with the company.
The consultant is following up on suggestions the Economic Development Commission made in a 1996 Comprehensive Development Plan, Jackie Barton, an associate of Mary Means and Associate, has said.
