Shan Harris, with the TDECD, facilitated the meeting and praised the RETC for developing such a good set of goals last year.

"I get more support from this county than any other county I work with," Harris said.
After RETC Executive Director Raymond Walker makes the suggested changes, Rhea County Executive Billy Ray Patton will present the strategic plan to the Rhea County Commission for review and approval, according to Harris.
Annually updating the strategic plan is an important part of the TDECD's Three-Star Program, Harris said.

But the Rhea Economic and Tourism Council, which has been a Three-Star recipient for 27 of the program's 28 years, is well positioned to reach the third benchmark this year, according to Shan Harris, regional economic development specialist, with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.

"You're already doing about 99 percent of this now," Harris told the RETC Board Monday."We just want you to be a little more focused about how you go about it."
Rhea County's commitment to the Three-Star Program is obvious, according to Harris.When TDECD held a statewide Three-Star conference in October, Rhea County had the largest delegation of the 86 counties participating.
The biggest change in the program is an increasing emphasis on community awareness, Harris said.
The county's five-year strategic plan is still the centerpiece of the Three-Star Program.Harris said that when the top priorities from all the participating counties was compiled last year, those statewide priorities were: 1.Business recruitment, 2.Education, 3.Improving infrastructure, and 4.Tourism.
"You're almost like a model for other communities your size," Harris said."It takes a lot of work and cooperation to achieve what you have here in Rhea County.I am very, very proud of you."
Harris met Tuesday morning with Walker, Rhea County Executive Billy Ray Patton and the mayors of each of the three municipalities to further discuss the program.
