The Town Hall is themed “Reimagine St. Croix: A Vision for Healthy People, Thriving Economies, and A Sustainable Environment.”
The last of a three-part series, the Town Hall will provide community space in which residents will have the opportunity to learn more about alternative paths toward thriving economies and a clean, sustainable environment. Like the first two town halls, the convening is intended to establish an open dialogue between policy makers, regulators, and the Community, and to establish a vision for the future.
Scheduled contributors include representatives from the US Environmental Protection Agency; Nathaniel Smith, Chief Equity Officer of Partnership for Southern Equity; Wayne Biggs, Chief Executive Officer of the Virgin Islands Economic Development Authority, and Sydney Paul, Senior Manager of Business Intelligence and Marketing at the Virgin Islands Research and Technology Park.
