On January 20th, 2023 the first Monessen Economic Summit will be held at the Monessen High School Auditorium starting at 9:00 AM.
Do you know of all the changes planned for Monessen? How is it being paid for and when will it happen? What is the plan for the city and how is it going to transpire.
If you are interested in or have questions about what is going on in Monessen, this will be your opportunity to hear about what’s being done to bring new life and opportunities to our city. It’s not one simple thing but a set of complex projects that is expected to take lots of hard work from all of us to accomplish. It’s only going to get busier as we move forward. Come and see our plans.
We have organized a diversified group of very influential speakers including federal, state, county, and city officials, philanthropist, and local groups to talk about these plans. Coming together in this unique event all focused on Monessen, you will get a firsthand understanding of the efforts underway.
This is surely an event you don’t want to miss!
