An Amarillo Economic Development Corporation and City of Amarillo event was planned for Thursday night.
The event, lead by Avalanche Consulting, invited local residents to provide feedback on what they believe the economic future for Amarillo should be. The group discussed the importance of an economic plan and its success in other markets.
"Economic development is vital to all communities," The City of Amarillo said through a press release, "And careful planning results in proactive initiatives that can better serve residents by addressing major needs in a community or by taking full advantage of existing assets."
Residents and business owners who were unable to attend tonight's events are also invited to participate in an online survey at alignamarillo.com.
