RCS CBA's Board of Directors met with Mayor Bill Misuraca and Deputy Mayor Nancy Warner late this summer. The meeting was coordinated in an effort to build relationships with local municipal leaders as outlined in the association's 2021 strategic plan.
The Village leaders and association board had a great discussion about economic development, the challenges of code enforcement with privately owned abandoned and dilapidated properties in the Village and much more. Most importantly, the mayor and deputy mayor agreed to a meeting with the Town to begin a dialogue of cooperation to better our community.
"RCS CBA leadership was excited to meet with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor," said Chair Joy Iafallo. "We firmly believe in working together to create change. We're excited to assist the Village wherever possible to help it grow and prosper."
“The Village is very excited about moving forward jointly with the RCS CBA and the Town; this initial meeting was a positive first step to mutual open communication," said Deputy Mayor Nancy Warner.
RCS CBA and the Village agreed to have regular meetings to work on community efforts. Mayor Misuraca and Deputy Mayor Warner agreed to send a representative to serve on RCS CBA's Economic Development Advisory Committee, which is about to reactivate after a pandemic-induced break. RCS CBA also participated in the Village's Friendship Festival in August.
