CFMC Partners with IU Students for Morgan County County-Wide Asset Map

In 2023, a graduate class from Indiana University O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs partnered with the City of Martinsville and Martinsville Chamber of Commerce on a placemaking initiative.  CFMC was blessed to attend its capstone presentation, which focused on community amenities, economic development, public art, and public image.

We have since established our relationship with Indiana University Bloomington and are excited to work with their students.  This semester, CFMC is working with an Urban Problems and Solutions class taught by Professor Dr. Mitch Berg.  CFMC recognizes the importance of understanding and recording assets within Morgan County, such as stakeholders, centers of influence, amenities, nonprofit service organizations, government assistance programs, etc.  The benefit of this mapping exercise is understanding all that Morgan County has to offer and bringing any needed gaps into the light.  This may also provide future grant funding opportunities within Morgan County.

So, stay tuned for updates.  Brittani and Jessica enjoyed visiting and guest speaking to this classroom of brilliant students on January 25th.  We are excited about this collaboration for pioneering something new for our county and for a map of existing and needed assets within Morgan County.
