MAR 2017 – President’s Article by Todd Underwood

Thank you to all who came to the Chamber ribbon cutting on February 13th.  We had good weather, great food and a wonderful time socializing.

As you know, Redlands is in the process of transitioning to city wide district divisions. This is a daunting task.  Having reviewed the maps available to us, your Chamber Government Review Committee is recommending that the Board support Map Draft 2b.  The most appealing component of this draft is that four of the five districts reach into downtown Redlands.  We believe that with Map Draft 21b, the majority of the districts will share the focus of our economic center.  Once the districts have been defined and selected, the Chamber will work closely with the city officials and the business community to ensure that each district is well represented.
