RESOLUTION TO ENDORSE THE GOALS AND STRATEGIES OF THE OLD TOWN RENAISSANCE MASTER PLAN

WHEREAS, Winthrop University is committed to building a stronger, healthier community; and

WHEREAS, The Old Town area of Rock Hill suffers from declining population, low household incomes, and vacant and deteriorated buildings; and

WHEREAS, Old Town is of county-wide significance as the center of population, the largest employment and business center, the home of Winthrop University, local government, schools and other important civic and business facilities;

WHEREAS, Winthrop University acting by itself has limited ability to influence the overall health of Old Town; and

WHEREAS, Through collaboration Winthrop University can use its resources most effectively in achieving its own mission, and in support of Old Town; and

WHEREAS, Winthrop University, Rock Hill School District Three, City of Rock Hill, York County, Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation, York County Regional Chamber of Commerce, and York Technical College have co-sponsored the creation of the Old Town Renaissance Master Plan;

NOW THEREFORE, Winthrop University does hereby endorse the goals and strategies of the Old Town Renaissance Master Plan and does pledge its continued collaboration and support for this important community initiative.
