The Reidsville Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has been approved to attend a training, required by the secretary of state, on May 5 via Zoom.
Poulos and Janet Brewton were sworn in to the DDA at the start of the meeting.
Kimberly Poulos presented the training to the council at their April 11 council meeting. The training requires 16 people to attend, nine city officials and seven DDA members. The cost is $250 per person, totaling at $4,000 to be paid by the city.
Mike Caldwell with the DDA also provided an update to the council on properties and new businesses that are in development.
He first addressed multiple pieces of land in Reidsville that have been cleared, but no further work has been done. He said that he was going to look into forming a tree ordinance for the city.
The new Huddle House is currently hiring and is set to open for business on May 17, according to Caldwell.
He also mentioned that there is a new tinting business, Jarriel’s Tinting, located at 109 James Street. This business is owned by a younger individual, Jaedin Jarriel. He provides professional tinting services to cars, homes, and businesses.
The new Comfort Inn and Suites on highway 23, next to the Food Lion shopping center in Reidsville, has not had much development since breaking ground. There is a very big hole dug, which has caused some concern for safety.
