Regional Economic Vibrancy
Regional Economic Vibrancy (REV) is the name for an unfolding effort that asks residents of the eight counties of Southern Middle Tennessee -- the counties served by Local Workforce Investment Area 10 -- to find the most important ways we can work together.
Then, do it.
Tourism? Broadband? Highways? Education? Achieving REV in these areas will be easier if we raise our voices and wave our flags together. It is a long-term approach to raising our quality of life, and helping more of our kids find their careers and lives among us, where many of them would rather be.
REV is looking for a few citizens from each of our counties who would agree to come together once or twice in the coming months. The initial goal is finding ways to encourage a broader discussion of what is most important.
Perhaps that will be a community meeting in each of our county seats. Perhaps that will be one all-day session, where anyone and everyone gets the chance to help build consensus.
Such agreement will allow all of us to pursue REV.
