EVART — As part of its continued progress in matching goals for Project Rising Tide, Evart has set a housing and economic development strategy meeting.

The meeting, set for 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 14, at city hall, will include a presentation and brainstorming session.

The goal of the meeting is to identify strategies, programs and tools that can help improve Evart's housing and employment opportunities.

Project Rising Tide, sponsored by the Michigan Department of Talent and Economic Development, is an effort by Gov. Rick Snyder aimed to provide communities with tools they need to design and build a solid planning, zoning and economic development foundation to attract new businesses and help existing employers grow.
