Improvement Strategy Unveiled for Marion

The town of Marion focused on its future at a public meeting Thursday night.

Residents had the chance to see what Marion would look like, if suggested changes are made, such as parks and additional shopping areas.

The ideas were gathered after a "First Impressions" study was done by Mississippi State Extension Service through a WIRED grant, to see how first-time visitors react to the town.

"It will talk about a branding and marketing strategy. We'll also have a design strategy, a component about actual visual things that they can do in their community and short-term and long-term plans," said Jan Miller, regional director of Mississippi Main Street. "We'll also have some organizational information on how to take these plans and develop them into something the next few years."

The Mississippi State Community Action Team showed an improvement strategy that included suggestions from the townspeople.

    That's why they call it a four way STOP. Don't brake the law and you don't have to worry about the cops.
