The Triangle Community Coalition had Another Successful Coffee Chat

The Triangle Community Coalition had another successful Coffee Chat with the Town of Garner on Wednesday, March 12, 1014.
This chat was held at the Garner Performing Arts Center.

Joining our members were Mayor Ronnie Williams, Mayor Pro Tem Ken Marshburn, Council Members, Buck Kennedy and Kathy Behringer.
Also joining this chat were Town Manager Hardin Watkins, Rodney Dickerson, Assistant Town Manager, Public Works Director, Paul Cox, Town Engineer Tony Chalk, Planning Director Brad Bass and Tony Beasley, Economic Development Director.

We provided the Town of Garner leadership with a better perspective of the Triangle Community Coalition’s goal to be a proactive partner in growth and land use issues and to work with senior staff and elected officials to develop policies, regulations, and procedures to encourage economic development, produce predictable (yet flexible) outcomes for all stakeholders, and protect the community’s interests.

The Town appreciated the TCC’s ability to offer objective facts and information in efforts to improve public policy debates and create effective working relationships between the business community and local government. We had some great interaction with the TCC membership in attendance and had opportunity to talk.

If you are interested in participating in future meetings with the Town of Garner or future Coffee Chats, watch for notices or contact the TCC offices 919 812-7785 or Charlene Logan at
