Predictions are that the best is yet to come in the city of Bronson

BRONSON, MI (WTVB) - The City of Bronson believes the best is yet to come for its downtown area. This week, The Bronson Downtown Development Authority Board of Directors held its first meeting and elected the first officers of the Authority. Former Coldwater DDA Director Barb Rosene was also on hand Wednesday night to advise the group and answer questions about the process of starting DDA operations. Bronson City Manager Mark Heydlauff said Rosene’s expertise has been extremely valuable for the City Council and his office as they navigated the complicated process of establishing the Downtown Development Authority over the past year. He also believes the newly appointed D-D-A board members represent a great cross-section of the community.

The board unanimously elected Bronson Edward Jones agent Derek Shaw to the post of Board Chair. Dave Barone of Barone Hardware and Auto is vice-chair and elected as secretary/treasurer was Homer Mandoka, a Bronson resident and Chair of the Tribal Council for the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi. Shaw says they have seen progress downtown over the past couple of years with the opening of a couple of new businesses, the product expansion at the hardware store, and the start of the August concert series at Memorial Park and they want to build on those successes. Rosene told the group it’s a nice clean downtown in Bronson with a good basis to build on but it will take time, adding that nothing will happen overnight.
