» Connors Q&A: "The Downtown Of Any City Is The Heart"

weelunk.com [cached]

Connors will do that not only because it is her job, but also because she cares about the community in which she was raised.
Connors grew in the East Ohio triangle of Tiltonsville,Yorkville, and Rayland, and downtown Wheeling was her metropolis where the tall buildings were filled with working people doing supply-and-demand business, and the small structures featured shops and restaurants and services for the thousands who commuted into the city. Connors returned to Wheeling in 2008. Connors returned to Wheeling in 2008. And then, as a teenager, she watched the place painfully drain of the retail shops, the clothing stores, and the eateries, and no longer did it bustle with business folks as the Friendly City's population dwindled. Connors moved away, too, after graduating from Buckeye Local High School in 1996, and West Liberty University in 2003, but Columbus, Ohio, was different from this Upper Ohio Valley. It was sterile there, and anonymous in nature. Above all, it wasn't home. Connors then accepted a marketing position with the city of Wheeling without knowing what to expect, and she embraced the defined duties and found herself adding to them. During her almost four-year tenure in municipal government she helped start First Fridays and worked diligently to enhance the festival season at Wheeling's waterfront Heritage Port. She's partnered with several others to open eyes and change attitudes, and Connors continues on that mission with RED today. The city and the region are now realizing an infusion of new and returning citizens thanks to the quality of life, employment opportunities, recreational parks and facilities, the community feel, the gas and oil industries, and the concentration on back-office businesses using the latest in technology. And Connors is not finished. Far from it, in fact. And you get the impression when discussing her home with her that she even would shake cheerleader pom-poms along Interstate 70 if she truly believed it would help attract even more people to Wheeling. After all, she's done almost everything else but. Connors: It did. Connors: People living downtown is huge. Connors participated in the YWCA's "Over the Edge" fundraiser last summer with Missy Ashmore and many others at the Stone Center in the downtown district. Connors: It depends on whom you ask. Connors: It is, and we have seen a lot of "little big things" take place, and it dates back to when Orrick chose Wheeling, and it has continued since. Novotney: Why did Joelle Connors choose Wheeling when you could have found employment anywhere in the country? Connors: It's home. Connors met Wheeling photographer Bennett McKinley in an alley in downtown Wheeling. Connors: It's already happening, and that's the shift to the downtown in terms of live, work, play. Connors: I do agree, and I also think that it led to a change in attitude. I think people realized that when everybody wins, everybody does win, and that's made a huge difference with the development that has taken place since. Novotney: What's next for Joelle Connors? Connors: I plan to continue working with the team at RED so we can continue doing everything we can for this city.
