FRWC EDA list Afton Inn a top priority
The Front Royal Warren County Economic Development Authority(EDA) met with New Front Royal Town Manger Steven Hicks in a frank discussion about topics of common importance to the Town, County and EDA.
All agreed that of primary importance was advancing the sale of the Afton Inn.
Developers Jim Burton and Alan Omar of 2 East Main LLC are looking forward to closing by Feb. 12 and getting the renovations started.
The building is a featured property in the Town’s historic Community Development Block Grant award and promises to be a marquee of Main Street in Downtown.
The Board also discussed joining the Clarke, Fredrick, Page and Shenandoah county EDAs for a regional workforce talent attraction website.
The Board is waiting for further information about goals and functions of such a site to be reviewed.
