As we continue our goal to #KeepBooneHealthy, a strong focus on the conditions that drive economic recovery in our area will be important to our eventual recovery.

Our guest this week, Joe Furman, serves as staff to the Watauga County Economic Development Commission. We focus on projects and sectors within our local community that are posied to aid in future growth. We discuss the importance of the census and how the data drives government funding of local projects and agencies. Furman talks about the deployment of broadband in rural North Carolina, and the importance of this type of infrastructure, especially with more remote technology uses needed by students and workers. We also discuss projects that will bring co-working space to Watauga County through Boone Underground and how the High Country Food Hub continues to boost local agriculture.

Also in this episode, we recap the 71st Boone Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Meeting and we preview Forward to Fall, a webinar that focuses on Northwest North Carolina's economic recovery.
