News Release

The Dillsboro Town Council officially named Seth Elder as the new town manager in a special meeting held Thursday evening, December 11, at the Town Hall. Mr. Elder comes to Dillsboro from Indiana Landmarks, a statewide nonprofit foundation dedicated to historic preservation and community revitalization. He is a 2008 graduate of DePauw University and working towards his Master of Science in Historic Preservation from Ball State University. Mr. Elder is a Fulbright Scholar and has completed study programs in Greece, Italy and Oxford University in Great Britain. He currently serves on the Lifetime Resources Housing Board and with various local preservation and historical organizations. In addition to his extensive resume, he has a working knowledge of the tools available to local governments for revitalization and redevelopment efforts, such as TIF districting to tax credits. Elder states, “through innovative planning and professional management, the utilization of these tools can make up for the lack of a large economic base and ensure that rural communities such as Dillsboro remain vibrant and livable places well into the future.”
