The Grants Pass Economic Development Department presented this week at the monthly meeting of Soroptimist International of River Valley.

Soroptimist International is a civic organization of multi-generational women who develop community service programs and provide educational scholarships.

Grants Pass City Manager Aaron Cubic said the presentation provided information on city goals and how they relate to economic development. Members inquired about filling empty storefronts in the downtown area and continuation of citywide events such as 4th of July, Art Along the Rogue and the Tree Lighting Ceremony.

Meanwhile, Grants Pass staff members visited several potential locations for a temporary Downtown Welcome Center this week. The building at the corner of 6th and G streets will be under construction for remodeling beginning in February.
