Hubcap II


HubCAP (the Hub’s Communities of Achievement Program) is a challenging, outcome-based, performance-driven initiative designed for Community Collaboration Teams (CCTs) that are serious about implementing major, locally-defined projects in their community. The expectation from the beginning is that the CCTs, Community Performance Coaches and Hub staff will collaborate to successfully achieve positive improvement in each HubCAP community.

The Wayne County CCT is planning and implementing tourism-related projects that will leverage the opportunities expected to come with the proposed lodge and conference center at Beech Fork State Park. These include an extensive trail system, arts & crafts businesses, an expanded local food system, a variety of active outdoor recreation opportunities and more. This initiative has recently added some work on assuring that the bond issue for the facility moves forward in the face of some technical glitches and a challenging state economy.
