Laurie Arnheiter, owner of Hudson River Trading Company, had expanded into a new building with the Outlet Store.
Another longtime resident, Bulmer noted that 20 years ago Arnheiter had been an active participant in creating the action plan that established the vision and laid down the framework that played a key role in North Creek’s economic development and success.
Arnheiter said another committee has recently been formed to develop an action plan for the next 20 years, and that she was excited to be a part of establishing a vision and goals for the continuing growth and success of North Creek.
