Inman – There’s A Lot to Talk About

 

Walking around the City of Inman, you may not notice a lot of the growth and other great things that have been happening recently. That’s the thing about Inman, the laid back atmosphere and relaxing feel hides a fervor for progress and innovation that isn’t readily apparent on the surface. The Inman Community Development office has an entire bulletin board of news articles about the amazing things happening in the community but not much is spoken about these topics as you walk down Main Street. To the citizens of Inman, progress isn’t something to boast about, it’s something to quietly strive for.

If you take the time to reflect on the past year, you’ll see that the City of Inman has a lot to be proud of and even more to talk about. Here are just a couple of the highlights from 2017 and 2018:
