We must guide development to meet the economic, social and recreational needs of all residents. We must foster a unified community while maintaining the ambiance of a small rural town with the uniqueness that is Meredith. We must realize this vision in an efficient, cost-effective manner.Editor's Note: Dr. Jaffe's report on the safely issues related to ice throws is available via the link below.
