Erin Burks has been selected as the finalist and is slated to step into her new role in early January. Erin currently holds the position of Director of Marketing and Tourism for the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The Downtown Coordinator will be responsible for developing and implementing a Downtown/Main Street Program which utilizes the City Comprehensive Plan and Downtown Master Plan as the foundation with the goals of stimulating economic development, commercial revitalization, and fostering communication and collaboration among everyone in the district and community.
“Our Downtown business district is poised and ready for economic growth and development. With the new TIRZ projects and infrastructure improvements slated for the area, it makes sense that the City and the EDC would further support that effort with a Downtown Coordinator,” Mike Hodge, City Manager.
“With the amount of investment activity and interest in Downtown Marble Falls right now, we believe the time is right to add a Downtown Coordinator to the leadership team. We are excited to have Erin join us in this capacity and encourage the development of a more active and vibrant Downtown,” Christian Fletcher, Executive Director of the Marble Falls EDC.
“I am thankful for everything I have learned under the leadership of the Chamber of Commerce and CVB and I am very much looking forward to this new adventure. I am excited to have this opportunity to contribute to the already established creative atmosphere the Downtown Alliance has in place. Downtown is such an important part of our community with tons of potential,” Erin Burks, incoming Downtown Coordinator.
