What should the community do to attract more young people to the area? We must continue to work with not only the major employers in Macon County, but all employers in Macon County to find ways to locate them in our community, retain them in our communities, or help them develop in our communities. communities. The more jobs we create in Macon County, the more young people we can attract.
We also need to continue to give people a reason to stay in the community once they move here. Over the past few years it has been wonderful to see the revitalization of downtown Decatur which helps attract people to shop and eat. The Devon Amphitheater is a big draw for people right now, but it brings people from other areas to Macon County to spend their money in our communities.
Continue to promote outdoor activities in local parks and walking trails. Mount Zion has Fletcher Park and Spitler Woods, which provide a great place to spend a great day outdoors and get some exercise.
The Village of Mount Zion will be adding a Splash Pad to Fletcher Park for families to enjoy.
