Sylva's Town Manager, Adrienne Isenhower, announced that Sylva native Paige Roberson, 24, will serve as the Town's new Main Street Economic Development Director for the Town of Sylva and Director for the Downtown Sylva Association (DSA).
“I am excited about getting to work. Last week I went to a main-street managers meeting in Concord and got some really great ideas that I am excited to begin working on,” Roberson said. “I am most excited about the Mill Street [also known as back street] renovations and encouraging small business development and retention in the downtown area.”
Roberson, a third-generation Sylva native, whose family owned and operated Sylva’s former Roberson Supply is personally invested in the economic development of the town and values the importance of continuing the tradition of engaging community activities, historic preservation, and downtown revitalization.
