Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall was the guest speaker at last month’s Radcliff Small Business Alliance luncheon.
Program Chairman Barry Saylor introduced Duvall. This was Duvall’s seventh time as a primary speaker for the program, Saylor said when introducing Duvall.
Duvall provided an update on economic progress in the area. He explained how long the process takes when trying to recruit new businesses to the area. For example, Freddy’s took five years to capture the business which will occupy the former Long John Silver’s in Radcliff.
Duvall also discussed the vision and approach to replacing the Redmar Plaza and adjacent property. A key aspect is the Tax Increment Financing District, which assists the developer over time.
Finally, Duvall encouraged everyone to talk positively about Radcliff and promote its great attractions and quality of life.
At the close of the meeting, members talked with the mayor individually and in small groups.
