Community Joins Together to Boost Economic Development

By  | 

An Arlington Group will bring their community together to boost economic development.

The Downtown Development Authority will host the first-ever yard sale at the depot. It will be held in the newly-restored, historic train depot.

Proceeds from both sales will help fund restoration costs.

"Any small town is inclusive to itself, in other words there aren't a lot of funding opportunities and anytime you can bring people together within your community to spend money amongst themselves, that's better than having them leave town and try to spend the money. The other is just to bring people together," said Lean Conner, Downtown Development Chairman.

Conner also says the sale is a way for resident to meet neighbors.
