A survey of residents in Little River County reveals that people want more social activities, cleaner streets and jobs.
The information was gathered by officials hoping to bring new industry to the area. Economic Development Coordinator Vickie Williamson said she wants the plan for growth to be resident-driven.
She’s using the information in her mission to bring a truck to rail logistics facility to Little River County. Williamson said, “For many companies, freight is their second largest expense … it will reduce their costs for some companies that are large shippers. So that’s what we anticipate being attractive to some companies.”
Williamson said she plans to use feedback from residents to develop a vision statement and meet with them again in a few months.
