Wednesday morning Scio Township hosted a breakfast event to celebrate the launch of its new website. Before a group of 50 local officials and business people, Spaulding Clark, Township Supervisor explained that the Township is reaching out to its constituents with easy to access information about living and doing business in Scio.
The website was designed by Annie Wolock of Keystone Media. Content for the site was prepared by Township officials and committee chairs and pulled together by Marty Mayo, a Township resident and chair of the Economic Development Action Committee (EDAC).
Along with the new website, the Township also unveiled a promotional video touting Scio’s surprising business community. Scio’s businesses are surprising both in numbers – more than 900 – and in the innovation and creativity they represent. The video was designed by Hile Design, whose owner Dave Hile is a member of the Economic Development Action Committee. EDAC sponsored this video to spread the word about the many advantages Scio’s cool and useful companies have enjoyed by making their home in Scio’s “creative corridor” along Jackson Boulevard.
The Economic Development Action Committee believes that Scio is one of Ann Arbor’s “best kept secrets” – it has more than 16,000 residents plus an active industrial/commercial community, but many people living in the Ann Arbor area do not even know where Scio is and can not pronounce its name (sigh-oh).
