Letter FROM m ayor mike ke nne dy Shown below: Mayor Mike Kennedy with wife, Cindy

s I look at Monroeville today, I see the same small town in which I grew up — the same, but better! Children can still ride their bikes to the historic downtown square, families drive their golf carts around neighborhoods and young families are everywhere! Safety and quality of life are a primary concern. The city of Monroeville is working hard to maintain and improve areas such as Whitey Lee Park and the former Vanity Fair Mills property at the city’s entrance on Alabama Avenue. As mayor, I continue to push for infrastructure improvements to our streets, lighting and landscape. Our retail options have dramatically improved in recent years and we continue our push for new jobs in manufacturing and distribution. Through our close alignment with the regional Coastal Gateway alliance, and our own Monroeville/Monroe County Economic Development Authority, we are beginning to see results that will eventually translate into jobs. I recently spent two weeks in China calling on executives of Chinese companies that have an interest in establishing a presence in the United States. I have every reason to think that persistence in pursuing these opportunities will eventually pay off for our city and county. As we go forward into the Spring of 2014, I am thankful for our town and look forward to hearing from you, our citizens, about what we can do to continue to make this one of the best small towns in America! Best regards, Mike Kennedy, Mayor

HISTORY urrent-day Monroeville was once the home of the Creek Indians, where the land was clashed over by France, Spain and England. In 1815, the Creek Indians surrendered the land at the Treaty of Fort Jackson and the county was created by proclamation of the governor of the Mississippi Territory. The county was once about one-third of the size of present-day Alabama and is often referred to as the “Mother County.” Monroeville, named Monroe County’s seat of government in 1832, was incorporated in 1899. Both Monroeville and Monroe County were named in honor of U.S. President James Monroe.

MONROE COUNTY HERITAGE MUSEUM – THE MAIN ATTRACTION! Monroeville’s 1903 courthouse, which once served as the county seat, is home to the Monroe County Heritage Museum. The building was lovingly restored in a grassroots effort beginning in 1989 and concluding in 2002. The museum today features permanent exhibits dedicated to Monroeville writers Nelle Harper Lee and Truman Capote, who were childhood companions, and annually attracts over 30,000 visitors, more than the county’s population. Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, “To Kill A Mockingbird” was published July 11, 1960. Its publication put Monroeville on the map for literary tourists; the novel, now in its 54th year of publication continues to draw visitors to Monroeville from all over the world. The film version of “To Kill A Mockingbird” debuted in 1962, and won a best-actor Oscar for Gregory Peck, who portrayed Atticus, and an adapted screenplay award for Horton Foote. Christopher Sergel’s ever popular theatrical version followed, and has been a springtime tradition at Monroeville’s historic courthouse since 1991. Enacted by a volunteer cast, The Mockingbird Players, and set in the O. L. Biggs Amphitheater, on the west side of the courthouse square, (Act 1) and upstairs in the historic courtroom (Act 2), the production annually plays to sold out audiences. The 25th Production of “To Kill A Mockingbird” was listed in the Top 10 Events for Alabama Tourism for 2014. A whole industry has grown up around Monroeville’s role as “Literary Capital of Alabama,” a title bestowed in 1997 by official declaration of the Alabama Legislature.

There are two walking tours of the downtown area, one narrated with signage, that relates a history of homes and structures in the downtown historic district. In 2009, over 400 structures in Monroeville’s historic downtown were designated by The National Park Service as worthy of designation on “The National Register of Historic Places.” These include the 1903 museum, the U.S. Post Office, the Monroe County Public Library, and many other commercial and residential structures. Businesses throughout the downtown maintain a “main street” flavor. Artists and entrepreneurs offer unique items for sale, such as original artwork, pottery, quilts, handpainted ceramics, embroidered items, furniture, woodworking and more. The Bird’s Nest Gift Shop, inside the Monroe County Heritage Museum, offers a wide selection of items, ranging from Rikards Mill grits and cornmeal, to old fashioned childrens toys, artwork, hand towels and more. The gift shop has been termed “a destination in itself.” Whatever the occasion, a visit to Monroeville is not complete without an extensive tour of the courthouse square area!

DINING & LODGING onroeville offers many dining options. Due to the area’s southern location, these range from the traditional “meat and three” buffets to such popular dishes as “shrimp and grits” and fried green tomatoes. Two local restaurants, Radley’s Fountain Grille and David’s Catfish House, have been prominently featured in the Alabama Tourism Department’s “100 Dishes To Eat Before You Die” brochure. David’s Catfish is featured for its fried catfish and cheese grits, and Radley’s is featured for its “Fried Green Tomato BLT Supreme.” A.J.’s Family Restaurant is popular on Sundays for its deluxe breakfast and lunch buffets—be sure to try the tomato gravy!

On Monroeville’s historic downtown square Courthouse Square Café is known for its desserts and petit-fours, and The Sweet Tooth Bakery serves up a traditional southern lunch—if it is Thursday, it is chicken and dressing day at the Sweet Tooth! For just desserts, Sharon’s Cakes in Excel serves up everything from traditional carrot cake, to lovely wedding and special occasion cakes with divine buttercream icing. To top it off, almost everyone serves “sweet tea.” If “sweet tea” is not on the menu, it is not a southern establishment! Prop & Gavel is a favorite place for evening dining and cocktails, sporting a full bar in a beautifully renovated downtown storefront. It also offers a rooftop dining option. No visit to Monroeville is complete without a stop at Mel’s Dairy Dream, next to the site of the Faulk House (original home of Truman Capote’s cousins).

The public schools have been very successful in applying for grants, both through government and private foundations, that are making a vast difference in the areas of infrastructure and resources. The 21st Century Grants have been received by Beatrice Elementary, J. F. Shields, and Monroe County High School, totaling $250,000, respectively, for each school. The schools have received grant money to fund accelerated reader programs and to implement Career Tech Mobile Computer Labs. One of the most exciting programs is the iPad initiative in place at Monroeville Middle School, funded through grants from the M. W. Smith, Jr. Foundation and the Bedsole Foundation. In addition, during 2012/13, the Board of Education successfully achieved wireless connectivity for all schools. All schools also have computer labs and

computer carts (charging stations with 25-50 laptops) available. These technology enhancements lend themselves to creating a more stimulating and challenging learning environment for Monroe County students. The Board of Education has approved a capital outlay plan to improve buildings and grounds, with over $1 million committed for 2013-14. When she is not out in the field visiting schools, Dr. Kathy Murphy may be found at the Central Office location at 109 Pickens Street. This new location for the Central Office also houses the Gifted Students Program and the HIPPY Program (Home Instruction for Parents of Pre-School Youngsters).

This is immediately evident when viewing the college’s campuses, located in Monroeville, Thomasville, Gilbertown and Jackson. The bar is set high, from the exteriors of the facilities, to the cutting edge technological advances on each campus. Monroe Academy also offers a fully accredited daycare program for three- and four-year-olds. The facility is self-contained on the Monroe Academy campus, and is open from 6:45 a.m. until 5:15 p.m. Balanced and nutritional meals are provided to students, and each morning starts with devotion and morning prayer.

Alabama Southern is a state-supported, fully accredited, comprehensive two-year college serving southwest Alabama. It boasts over 80,000 alumni. In an era of falling enrollments for many of the state’s two-year colleges, Alabama Southern has actually achieved a 4.9 percent increase in enrollment, with over 1,370 students in 2013/14. Alabama Southern offers many of the same courses as four-year universities at a fraction of the cost. It also has a “careerready” component, meaning that many times when students graduate from their respective two-year program, there is a job waiting for them. Alabama Southern’s technical labs are among the best in the country, according to college President Sykes.

During 2014, the college is working on renovation of its Workforce Development Center in Monroeville. The 69,000-squarefoot building houses such programs as welding and industrial maintenance, and training programs are being expanded as the building renovation is completed. Alabama Southern supports and encourages economic growth, and offers many programs to enrich the area’s quality of life. These include such programs as the Alabama Writers Symposium, held annually in April and in its 17th year, art exhibits, concerts, the annual Black History program, dinner theaters, and other programs.

Economic De velopme n t onroeville, centrally located in southwest Alabama, has much to offer new and expanding businesses. The town has transitioned from one of the leading textile communities in the south to a hub for wood and wood products. Since the textile industry began its offshore moves in the mid-1990s, Monroeville and Monroe County have had to reinvent the wheel, so to speak, in defining a new strategy in economic development. Currently at the helm of Monroe County’s economic development strategy is Glen Haab, assisted by Kelly Black in the Monroeville/ Monroe County Economic Development Authority Office. They work very closely with the five county Coastal Gateway Economic Development Alliance to identify prospective businesses and assist existing industries in their needs. It helps that Monroeville has established an Advantage Site in its Monroeville Industrial Park, and that several properties in the park are available for ready occupancy, one a 30,000-square-foot speculative building, expandable to 90,000 square feet, and the other a 60,000square-foot metal building. Other properties and sites are available throughout the county.

Martin; Harrigan Lumber Company; Owens Lumber Company; Scotch Plywood; B & B Cabinet Doors; and others. The direct and indirect employment opportunities offered by these outstanding employers drives Monroe County’s economy. In addition, Gate Precast Company, which manufactures architectural precast concrete, has continued to ramp up employment as it “shapes skylines” in the south.

In the world of today, everything is logistics. Monroeville’s optimal location, with two connections to Interstate 65, and its location as the hub of the El Camino East/West Corridor (U.S. 84) in Alabama, puts it within 24-hour access to two-thirds of the U.S. economy. The county is also well served by Monroe County Airport, with its 6,100 foot runway. The airport is heavily utilized by civilian and military aircraft, and, in fact, serves as a training area for the military. The Federal Aviation Administration is currently upgrading the airport’s infrastructure. County and city leaders have also identified opportunities with Chinese companies that wish to locate in the United States, closer to their respective consumer bases. No stone has been left unturned in this endeavor to sell Monroe County to Chinese investors: The City of Monroeville hosted two Alabama China Partnership Symposiums in 2012/13, and Monroe County Commission Chairman Greg Norris traveled extensively in Hong Kong and China on business development missions during this same period, joined by Monroeville Mayor Mike Kennedy on a fall, 2013 trip.

2014, city and county leaders will participate in a third Alabama China Partnership Meeting, this one to be held in nearby Dothan (also on the El Camino East/West Corridor). Downtown Monroeville, with its quaint courthouse square, surrounding shops, restaurants and museum, is also a draw for residents and tourists alike. Several entrepreneurs are scattered on the courthouse square, and in this age where everything is available everywhere, there are a plenitude of unique items available only here, or perhaps through online outlets. When exploring Monroe County’s economic development prospects, one should never discount the county’s natural beauty, nor its acknowledged position as a mecca for hunting, fishing and outdoor recreational activities. An exciting rails-to-trails project is under development in north Monroe County, and the county is a draw as a retirement location for a population that is tired of traffic, lines and waits, and revels in the clear beauty of the night skies over the surrounding countryside. Monroe County’s future prospects are bright!
