On August 15th the YPN held its first “Coffee with Phil in the Blank” meeting at the Ayres Hotel Redlands. The YPN had the privilege of hearing a presentations from Mayor Paul Foster. The event was so informational and educational; Mayor Foster entertained questions from the YPN about the challenges and issues that face their businesses directly. Mayor Foster was candid and honest with his answers and gave feedback on every issue presented to him.
The Mayor gave us an update on the plans for the Packinghouse District, he discussed the potential for a joint-venture parking structure to quell some of the parking issues facing the downtown area, he gave an update of the success of Hillside Cemetery, and discussed the importance of making financially responsible decisions (albeit sometimes not popular decisions) to protect the future of the City, it’s residents and its business partners.
“Coffee with Phil in the Blank” is set to be a bi-monthly meeting in which the YPN Committee members will invite various members of the community to present and provide discussion relevant to the YPN and our age-ranged business professionals.
