Antigo First downtown group to eye the past year, makes plans for the future
space
The Antigo First downtown organization is entering its second year, and will spend some time Thursday looking back over the last 12 months and planning for the future.

The presentation and discussion will be held at the Edison Club Event Center beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The event is designed for business owners and those interested in the future of the downtown to hear updates on milestones of the past year and plans for 2014. The focus will be on how businesses may benefit by being a part of this progressive organization.

Antigo First, an Advisory Group of the Langlade County Economic Development Corporation, was established a year ago in conjunction with the Connect Communities program through the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. Its goal is to create and implement revitalization strategies for the downtown area. The group meets once a month to share ideas and to receive updates from invited guests.

The evening will include a Power Point presentation describing Antigo First along with presenting goals and calls to action for the coming year. The evening should wrap up around 7 p.m.

“Connect Communities”, which is designed for smaller communities, is similar to the state’s Main Street program in that it offers technical assistance and networking opportunities. It differs from Main Street in the amount of time and expense required for participation.

A free-will offering will be accepted to help support the non-alcoholic drinks and hors d’oeuvres being served. There will also be a cash bar and door prizes.
