The Chipley Redevelopment Steering Committee is expected to soon make improvement recommendations to members of Chipey City Council.
The committee was formed in early 2021 by a resolution of the City Council. Committee members were each appointed by a member of the City Council and serve on a voluntary basis. The members are Jennifer Jones, Committee Chair, Cheryl Gainer McCall, Vice Chair, Cindy Borge, Emily Farrar, Patrick Lewis, Leanne Pedraja, Gina Pippin, and Amy Wiwi.
The purpose of the committee was to define a Redevelopment Area, research, discuss and development official set of recommendations to present to the City Council. The committee considered factors such as safety, accessibility, aesthetics, and strategy.
Over the past few months, members have engaged with local business and property owners for recommendations, problems and possible solutions.
The committee met Monday, June 7, and prepared the Phase I recommendations.
These recommendations will be presented to the Chipley City Council at the July meeting.
