sophia meeting

Sophia Mayor Danny Barr, left, met with fellow town officials and community members to discuss future development plans for the town and surrounding areas Monday night at the Soggy Bottom Saloon. One of the major items community officials and residents discussed was the potential renaming of the entire project from one that focuses not just on the town of Sophia, but the entire area stretching from Interstate 77 at Exit 42 down to Sophia, which includes the communities of MacArthur and Crab Orchard. Barr stressed that the well-being of those neighboring unincorporated communities are just as vital to the well-being of Sophia and vice versa.
