Pedestrian connectivity is in the STMS work plan.

Promotions Committee is working on new banners, way finding signs and a downtown map featuring businesses, art, history and cultural locations accessible by walking or bicycle trails.

Economic Vitality group plans include promoting the Hayesville Farmers Market and Small Business Saturday, recruiting new businesses and providing additional support to those already established in downtown.

Economic Vitality group volunteers will join the Design Committee this year to work with Mayor Baughn for safety and improved parking.

New recycle and waste bins for at least 10 locations inside the historic courthouse square and around downtown are a current project from the Design Committee. Plaque recognition will be given to organizations who make donations to Historic Hayesville Inc. for at least one bin.
