November 14, 2014

CREC staff, Martin Romitti and Brendan Buff, met with key Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) stakeholders in Cambridge, OH on Friday, November 14 to discuss the impact of ARC investments in their communities. The meeting was hosted at Zane State College by the Ohio Governor’s Office of Appalachia. At the meeting, local stakeholders saw ARC investments as vitally important to the communities they serve across a range of issues and needs: roads, water & sewer, health, workforce training, business development, among others.  In particular, the flexibility, consistency and predictability of ARC funding and services was cited as being critical to meeting the needs of rural and distressed communities.
