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.

Pedestrian connectivity is in the STMS work plan. 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.

Volunteers make them happen!  
 Two happy Hayesville volunteers that have shucked what seems like bushels of local grown corn for sale at a fund raising event on the square.  Friends of Historic Hayesville volunteers promoted events and summer flowers at the 2017 annual Small Town Main Street/HHI picnic on the square.
