Belton Chamber of Commerce to Host Community Update Luncheon Focusing on Growth and Infrastructure

The Belton Area Chamber of Commerce is set to host a Community Update Luncheon on April 12th to address the growth and infrastructure challenges being faced by the community. The event will feature three key speakers: Sam Listi, Belton City Manager, Cynthia Hernandez, Executive Director for Belton Economic Development Corporation, and Dr. Matt Smith, Belton ISD Superintendent.

Randy Pittenger, the President/CEO of the Belton Area Chamber, expressed excitement about the event, saying, “Each of these leaders will share information about plans for addressing growth and infrastructure needs we are experiencing in our fast growth community. We are thankful for their willingness to share their knowledge in this forum.”

The event is scheduled to take place from 12:00-1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12th at the Central Texas Council of Governments. Lunch will be provided by La Luncheonette, and tickets for the event are $20. Due to limited seating, interested parties are required to register beforehand.

The Belton Area Chamber of Commerce has not hosted a similar event since before the pandemic, and as a result, there is much interest in hearing about plans to address the challenges of growth.
