CANTON, OHIO (April 29, 2009) - The May 13 Canton Forum will introduce Stark County leaders to the Regional Prosperity Initiative (RPI). RPI is a regional land use planning and revenue growth sharing initiative comprised of leaders from 16 counties in Northeast Ohio, including Stark County. The initiative is designed to address internal competition for business among communities, fiscal disparities between communities and residents, and government fragmentation. Mayor Bruce Akers of Pepper Pike and Mayor William Currin of Hudson will present the Regional Prosperity Initiative at this exciting installment of Canton Forum.
Plan now to attend this very special Canton Forum to learn more about the initiative, how it will benefit our community, and how you can get involved.
The final Canton Forum luncheon, which is open to the public, will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the McKinley Grand Hotel, 320 Market Avenue S, Canton. Lunch is included for the price of $20. Tickets are required to attend the event and registrations must be received by Mon., May 11. Register for Canton Forum online at www.cantonchamber.org. Season ticket holders should use their final ticket of the season for this luncheon.
Since 1995, Canton Forum, sponsored by the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce and The Repository, has presented a wide array of distinguished speakers to the Canton community on topics relating to health, education, sports, business, public affairs and the arts. Not only have live Forum audiences enjoyed these presentations, but they have also been seen by thousands throughout Stark County thanks to re-broadcasts of the program on Time Warner Cable Channel 23 and online through Western Reserve PBS Channel 49 streaming video-on-demand at http://westernreservepublicmedia.org.
