02/06/2009

Downtown and Community Revitalization (DCR) Department Director Craig Scharton today announced that Amy Huerta, government affairs director for the Greater Fresno Area Chamber of Commerce, has been named local business initiatives manager in the reorganized department.

“Amy has the right combination of knowledge of the business community, a passion for working with our local businesses, and the willingness to tackle the tough issues that we’re facing,” Scharton said. “She is a strong addition to the Downtown and Community Revitalization Department’s team.”

The newly-created DCR will more sharply focus the City’s economic development efforts on strengthening the local economy through revitalizing downtown, improving neighborhoods and supporting locally-owned businesses.
