ESTABLISHMENT OF A TOWN TEAM FOR ARKLOW

A new Town Team for Arklow has been established. This follows on from the launch of the promotional video- Arklow Municipal District – Making a Difference last October.

One of the primary objectives of the Town Team initiative will be to encourage more collaboration, communication and co-operation between the local authority and the business community.

Part of the Town Team process will involve developing a draft Action Plan for Arklow and ensuring unity of message and strategy for the town – in essence one voice from one team for the town.

The Cathaoirleach of Arklow Municipal District, Cllr Pat Kennedy, along with officials identified a number of people to be part of this team which comprises individuals with broad sector experience across many disciplines.

The first meeting of the Town Team was held on Tuesday, 17th January 2017.
