The Tidewater News (March 12, 2014) -- MDC just helped write the plan, but the locals actually carried it out, Dodson said.

“All implementation is local,” he said. “All of you made these results happen.”
 
Dodson said that back then the community leaders were determined to get ahead of the economic shifts, work across racial lines, educate all young people, do vision planning and make better use of environmental and heritage resources. He said that was still a good plan.
 
“Whether consciously or not, this is the charter that the community is still acting on,” Dodson said. “This is the playbook for progress.”
