Plans call for the rest — slightly more than half of the total — to come from the group Mount Airy Downtown Inc. It is paid in addition to regular property taxes to cover common improvements downtown, a mechanism that has been in place for many years.
The projects presently eyed, as outlined to the commissioners Thursday by Main Street Coordinator Lizzie Morrison of the downtown organization include:. It includes identifying development opportunities; public parking solutions; a traffic-flow analysis and possible changes such as the removal of stoplights along North Main Street and making it two-way rather than one-way; and burying overhead power lines, among others.
The last master plan covering the downtown area was completed in Morrison said this will entail two unisex units. The only other public restrooms are in an area farther down the street where a new mural honoring The Easter Brothers musical group is located. Koch and Commissioner Jon Cawley cast the dissenting votes. But Koch said Mount Airy has other items that he indicated are more pressing than downtown improvements, including the replacement of older fire and garbage trucks and an HVAC upgrade at Reeves Community Center.
Cawley clarified that he is not against the proposal presented by the Main Street coordinator itself. Koch also questioned the use of city funding to pay for the new restroom facilities. Leadership has been defined in many ways throughout the centuries. That sentiment has been embraced and brought to life by Chris A.
Two years ago Lumsden, a nationally recognized leader in healthcare administration, asked members of his Northern leadership team to establish a unique, hospital-based Leadership Academy that would encourage and empower employees to become leaders. The goal of our Leadership Academy is to encourage those employees to strengthen and refine their leadership potential in order to improve patient care and enhance our community commitment, while furthering their own personal and professional development.
He also suggested they use an educational model with which he was already familiar to formulate a custom-deed curriculum for their new initiative. Employees interested in enrolling in the programmust apply with a written application and then undergo an interview with a group of hospital executives. Each Leadership Academy semester runs for six months and is limited to approximately eight students.
Before earning graduation certificates, each student presents his or her case study — a project proposal that incorporates the values and practical business considerations that have been explored as part of the curriculum. Two of the most recently-approved case studies highlight the positive effect the academy has had on motivating students to move beyond their job descriptions and create programs to help serve the healthcare needs of patients and the community. Tina Edwards, a recent Leadership Academy graduate, proposed the creation of a compassion closet to address the needs of eligible patients about to be discharged from the hospital.
Her idea arose after witnessing a newly-discharged gentleman leave the facility with no shoes. The new system also permits the training of interested members of the community. Since enrolling its first January class, 13 employee-students have successfully earned their graduation certificates.
So was the case Friday and Saturday as the Autumn Leaves Festival in Mount Airy launched its 55th annual showcase of arts, crafts, food and music. After a yearlong absence because of the COVID pandemic, getting back to the business of having some good old fashioned fun was more than welcome. For those who arrived before the official opening ceremony on Friday morning, the pick of the litter was to be had from the craft booths up and down Main Street.
My goodness. As the Greater Mount Airy Chamber of Commerce representatives got the main stage set up for the opening, the sound team worked diligently on their boards to ensure they were ready for the start of the music. Travis Frye, Autumn Leaves Festival director, helped open the festivities by thanking the many corporate sponsors and the attendees for coming out. Frye wanted to make a special note of thanks to the many public safety agencies that helped provide security and rescue services to event. Surry County Sheriff Steve Hiatt was seen smiling and shaking hands as he walked down the street.
Yet it was the less formal recognitions that make Autumn Leaves Festival so enjoyable. The atmosphere of neighbor seeing neighbor, friends seeing friends, and strangers being welcomed into the community as friends is what makes Autumn Leaves more than a street fair, but a true destination event of the Southeast, according to many who visit the event.
Single shoppers and couples meandered through the hundreds of booths, but noticeable were the whole families who came together for the event. Young kids with faces painted with a tiger stripe or stars could be seen, often a bright balloon tied to their wrist for a short time before one went fluttering off into the cloudy sky.
The pony rides and petting zoo provided in the Kids Zone this year were a treat, and more than one sibling was seen watching with envy as their brother or sister took that pony ride. Not listed for sale on any vendor sheet, but found in abundance at every booth was a feeling of welcoming hospitality. For those not from the area, more than one explanation was given standing outside of Snappy Lunch as to what a pork chop sandwich is. Perhaps not at record setting attendance levels to begin the day due to rain and lingering overcast skies, the shoppers came out for the handmade crafts.
Walking around the whole festival a couple of times may be needed to make sure nothing was missed. You never know, you may turn a corner and find one solitary picker on a stump taking requests. The Autumn Leaves Festival continues Saturday 9 a. Since , the LeFevre name has been synonymous with gospel music.
