Mindy Wendele, Director of Business Programs for the City of Kerrville, has been selected to serve on the Texas Historical Commission’s 2007 Resource Team. This opportunity is quite an honor for the City of Kerrville and represents the hard work Ms. Wendele has given to make the Main Street Program in Kerrville so successful.
The Resource Team is provided by the Texas Main Street Program to cities that are in their first year in the program. The team is responsible for meeting with city leaders, business owners, and community members in order to assess the community and develop a specific plan of action. Each meeting is tailored for the individual community and has the same goal – to provide a solid first-year foundation for an emerging Texas Main Street community and help provide long-term sustainability.
'It's quite an honor to serve on a resource team for the State of Texas where talents, ideas, initiatives and guidance can be shared to a start-up redevelopment program,” claims Wendele.
Council Member Todd Bock applauds the effective leadership of Wendele and the success of the Kerrville Main Street Program under her tutelage. “Having worked closely with the Main Street Program and Ms. Wendele for many years, I can say I have seen firsthand the positive differences they have made in downtown Kerrville. I am confident Ms. Wendele will do the same for other cities as a member of the Resource Team.”
Wendele’s first trip as a member of the Resource Team was to the City of Bastrop in April. “Bastrop has great historic fabric, enthusiastic citizens, and an interested business community to take our recommendations and make their Main Street program unique and successful.'
Wendele has also been asked to assist with the cities of Shiner, Cannon, and Pecos over the past several years.
