Chillicothe Ross Chamber’s Annual “State of the Community” May Have Sequel

Mike Throne, president and CEO of the Chillicothe Ross Chamber of Commerce, outlines the annual "State of the Community" meeting from March 8th - and the probability of a part 2.

The Chillicothe and Ross County Economy — The Chamber’s annual “State of the Community” meeting highlighted “great things” but there is more to tell.

I caught its president and CEO Mike Throne after he chaired the annual meeting of the the Pump House Center for the Arts, and asked him about the economic breakfast on March 8th…which I had missed.

Throne said those great things include the city’s new wastewater treatment plant that is under construction, development in city parks, parks, a $7.6 million expansion at the Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center, and downtown developments including guide kiosks.

He listed the speakers at the gathering:

  • Mayor Luke Feeney: State of the City
  • Jonathan Davis, superintendent of Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center: State of the Workforce and Education
  • Tiffany Baldwin: State of the Downtown
  • Mike Throne: State of the Chamber

But the superintendent of the Hopewell Culture National Historic Park could not speak on the World Heritage because he was called away to the Texas fires, and director of he Ross-Chillicothe Convention & Visitors Center Melody Young was out of town.

So Throne says he plans on another meeting on the World Heritage Hopewell and what to expect, and is trying for a spring date but it is not locked down.

Hear him in his own words in the below interview video. The Chillicothe Ross Chamber of Commerce has a website, Facebook page and more.
