The development of a mural for the community was one of the main items discussed during the recent meeting of Sparta-White County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

As previously discussed during the July Chamber meeting, the board of directors is working on plans to create a mural that will be placed in Sparta. The idea behind developing a mural is to highlight characteristics, symbols, and trademarks of Sparta and White County. This new mural would create a photo-taking opportunity for locals and visitors alike.

The board previously agreed to develop ideas and to continue the discussions. During the Aug. 22 meeting, several ideas and locations were discussed, ranging from one large mural to several smaller murals, as well as a few locations along Bockman Way.

After discussions, the board agreed that a sketch of possible ideas needed to be created, and the list of possible locations under consideration needed to be narrowed down by the next board meeting.

In other business, board members discussed the solar eclipse event that occurred Aug. 21. Chamber staff members were busy traveling to various locations throughout White County to pass out maps and to answer questions from out-of-town visitors. Several board members commented on the high volume of traffic from visitors that many businesses experienced.

Other items addressed by the board of directors included:

-Approving the minutes from the July meeting

-Discussions on the recent WAKE Awards night of recognition event

-Approving the Chamber’s financial statements

-Approving two new members to the Chamber, N&L Business Systems of Livingston and AirMed Network

-Discussions on the development of a nominating committee

Sparta-White County Chamber of Commerce will hold its next monthly meeting at 5 p.m., Sept. 26, at the Chamber office.
