A local economic group, Clarksburg Uptown, met at the Bluebird Monday evening to discuss its plans for Clarksburg's future.

Local business owners talked about their goals for a thriving business climate in the downtown area, and what could be done to attract more people.

"We're really just getting some feedback from the membership, what they would like to see happen in downtown Clarksburg. It's just basically a session to get anyone energized again, and I think we accomplished that goal," said Steve Haning, the organization's president.

Haning said Uptown's ultimate goal is to make downtown Clarksburg a thriving community again. Its next meeting will be on Tuesday, May 21.
