June ROMA Board Meeting Highlights
The ROMA Board met in Prince Edward County this month, providing an opportunity to learn about creative local initiatives that are helping to address challenges like housing, economic development and social services:
- Thrive Prince Edward County shared how it is working to revitalize community and economic development initiatives in the County through strong partnerships and a collaborative organization.

A community partnership bought the 70-acre site to create a mixed-use development with living art installations and an events space.
