Season 3, Episode 6

The city of Lexington took a major risk by giving tax breaks to a local developer, and the gamble paid off, while Cleveland gives its downtown area a face lift.

In Maxwell’s number, we hear about the Virginia Emerging Drone Cluster project which will take off in five Southwest Virginia counties, and John McGee, a geospatial extension specialist is helping bring small aircraft training to community colleges in Virginia. Meanwhile, Crystal Cook Marshall, a Virginia Tech doctoral student, discusses her research in hinterland economies.

Our episode concludes with three questions for Lexington mayor Mimi Elrod.
