Bremen HCI Holds Community Meeting

The members of the Bremen Hometown Collaboration Initiative (HCI) held a community meeting Thursday night to gather opinions from residents about what improvements they’d like to see within the town.

Bremen Director of Operations Trend Weldy said about 100 people packed the Bremen High School to deliver options to the committee. Weldy said placemaking, economy and leadership were the three main topics discussed during this forum. Downtown revitalization and streetscapes were highlighted.

The members will analyze which one of the three to focus on and start planning and look for grant funding. According to the Bremen HCI website, Bremen can grow by expanding housing, growing with commercial economic development, and building on local traditions.

Weldy said a survey was previously sent to residents and 1,000 of those surveys were returned. Those results will also go into the committee’s determination.
