Ending Speculation by Initiating Research:Duluth Public Schools Long Range Facilities Plan
The Chamber's leadership believes residents of our beloved community would benefit from fully understanding the comprehensive impact of the Duluth School District's Long Range Facilities Plan. With this as our motivation, the Chamber has contracted with the Labovitz School of Business and Economics - Bureau of Business and Economic Research to conduct research that will clearly illustrate the specific economic impact the Facilities Plan will have in Duluth and the surrounding region. This welcome information will help us fully understand what the Facilities Plan means to our community.
The research will be completed by May 29, 2009. We are motivated to share the research results with you, our valued Chamber members, as soon possible. That is why we have arranged for an initial presentation of the results at a luncheon scheduled for: Monday, June 1, at 11:30 a.m., at the Radisson Hotel. Registration and lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. The program and presentation of research results will begin at noon. The cost for members is $20, with a $35 cost for non-members. You can register by calling 722-5501 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting www.duluthchamber.com.
The Chamber's leadership is excited to engage the services of a respected research organization to provide you unbiased information regarding this controversial initiative. We are pleased and proud to bring the speculation to an end and replace it with timely, useful researched findings. I value and welcome your feedback on this issue.
