Hung has beautifully captured the area of our application for a Community Improvement Grant (CIG) from the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). Bravo to a Management Team that has been working for almost two years to bring an application for funding together with assistance from Hill Studio in Roanoke and the NRV Commission.

Special thanks to Nichole Hair, our Deputy Town Manager, and to Town Council for their leadership and support as we look to the future.

A professor from Virginia Tech once suggested that Pulaski Town was the most industrialized town in Virginia per capita. With traditional "smoke stacks" now gone, we must look deeply inward for success.

There is no "magic bullet" nor easy solution. "Experts" suggest now that towns now must grow outward from their centers, thus the focus on downtown. Fortunately, (unlike many towns) we have a downtown and a extant Main Street! Now we must encourage and invest in an entrepreneurial culture -- both public and private.

Thanks, Hung. You captured the moment!
