Residents in Headland had the opportunity to learn how draw more people to the area Monday afternoon.
Headland community members gathered on Monday afternoon to listen to a guest speaker from ADECA, or the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs.
ADECA is a grant making company helping communities improve their area, making it more appealing for others to move there.
“We're sort of known in the south for our southern hospitality and people like that,” Bill Johnson, director of ADECA. “When people think about moving to an area or locating a business, it's important to know that they feel comfortable there, that they think you know, this is a place that I could really raise my family.”
Community members had a chance to talk about opportunities and resources that could be brought to the area.
