As part of its meeting scheduled for Wednesday night at Bristol Town Hall, the Bristol Town Council will hear from representatives of Explore Bristol, the local initiative aimed at promoting the local economy.
Mike Byrnes, one of the organizers of the collaborative effort, explained in an email message that the workshop is a chance for Explore Bristol to introduce its work to the three new council members and give an update on its progress.
"Our workshop with the Town Council in November of 2011 and the Council's subsequent support is what put us on the road to enhancing economic vitality in our community and thus Explore Bristol," Byrnes wrote. "Town support remains important— both the Town Council and the Administrator are engaged with the effort. They open doors for us and they have a role in setting a supportive tone."
For Councilors Nathan Calouro, Edward Stuart Jr., and Timothy Sweeney — all elected for the first time last November — Byrnes said the session will be a chance for them to "come away with a deeper understanding of what we are trying to do."
Specifically, Byrnes explained that the group is planning to offer updates on its website, www.explorebristolri.com, discuss the progress of its working groups, and talk about the status of a visitor's center and PR materials, among other items.
Wednesday night's meeting is scheduled to start at 7 pm.
