Rutland To Discuss 'Creative Economy'


(Host) Rutland residents will get a chance to talk about what they'd like to see happen in the city Wednesday night at a public forum sponsored by Rutland's Creative Economy.

As VPR's Nina Keck reports, organizers are hoping for a big turnout similar to what the group had at its inception four years ago.

(Keck) Tara Kelly, chair of Rutland's Creative Economy, says over four hundred people showed up four years ago to dream big about what they wanted Rutland to become.

A long list of hopes and ideas was eventually whittled down to four key priorities: improving recreational opportunities, promoting local arts and culture, enhancing economic and environmental sustainability, and expanding the public outdoor spaces in downtown Rutland.
