    Recent notable events:
    • The Shelby Chamber of Commerce has finalized the Strategic Plan for the City of Shelby. This plan will outline goals and objectives regarding governing, housing, transportation, land use management, quality of life, as well as economic development. Because 2009 saw the closing of several large manufacturers, it will take an even greater commitment by those working in economic development to insure that our business community continues to be competitive in the changing marketplace of 2010. The City is working closely with the Shelby Chamber of Commerce and the Community Improvement Corporation to develop a plan for our economic future.

    • The utility department, parks department, project coordinator and city engineer have been very busy during 2009. The utility department finalized the upgrade of the electric infrastructure to support future business along Technology Parkway. They were also able to complete the water main portion of the East Main Street project and complete the sanitary sewer mapping to be used for future use. The Parks Department completed the Seltzer Creek Restoration project. During 2009, the City was able to repave 3.26 lane miles of streets and help 17 homeowners replace their sidewalks.
    • One of the most important pieces of legislation that passed during 2009 formed the Floodplain Management Commission. After two and half years, we have seen 37 homes in flood zones demolished. Sixteen homes came down in 2009, as well as, the Police/Court Building.
