Create talks community, Mayor encourages nominations and votes

BUCKHANNON — Create Buckhannon held their weekly meeting on Thursday, July 28 at the Opera House. They touched base on ideas for better keeping the community “in the loop” with all that is Buckhannon.

A town hall meeting is set to be held on Thursday, August 11, 2022, beginning at 6 p.m. in the conference room of the Buckhannon Safety Complex, located at 24 S. Florida Street in Buckhannon. Doors will be open at 5:30 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend!

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an update on the Stockert Youth and Community Center (SYCC) Board of Director’s recommendation to the City Council regarding the new SYCC building and to determine how it aligns with community members expectations. The new addition is meant to not only expand the SYCC programming opportunities that are currently provided, but also provide the Buckhannon-Upshur community a facility that will add additional event space to use for holiday and seasonal activities along with indoor exercise opportunities for all ages.

The City Council is interested in your opinion so plan to arrive early and join in the SYCC Town Hall meeting.
