What a great place to live and work – I knew that before I became Mayor of Fountain Inn in December. After moving into city hall, I realized how true that really is! Our city if filled with dedicated employees, department leaders, city council and citizens who work together on everything. The importance of Fountain Inn in the big picture or our region is quite impressive, but not overwhelming.
We have seen revitalization of our downtown through main street improvements, increased traffic and visitors. The energy and “warm and fuzzy” feeling is apparent to anyone moving through our city. Our special events and festivals are becoming the place to be for family-friendly entertainment and social gatherings. Not only do our residents benefit, but we are also seeing more and more visitors coming to see what everyone is talking about.
As we construct our new 2016 Master Plan, we are amazed by the inclusions of our residents with creativity and true passion for Fountain Inn – they do have a voice.
We are excited about the emergence of diversity and variety as we learn more and more about what we can and will do as a community to make sure our future, and our children’s future are secure.
So here we are with all of the tools to take the next steps in growth for our city and surrounding businesses. We are poised to strengthen our position in our county and state. The growth of residential home sites and new schools prove that people do see what we have, and want to be a part of the future.
Fountain Inn is truly the “INN” place to be!
