Ms. Harris was very thorough and helpful in training our Board in 2018 on the legal and ethical practices of successful Boards like ours. Having a knowledgeable person like Ms. Harris who is unaffiliated with our organization was vital in getting this important training for our Board so that its members could understand their responsibilities and have guidelines to follow as they serve. They all raved about all the information they got from Ms. Harris’ presentation and Q&A.

Donna Ann Harris, Principal Heritage Consulting Inc., assisted Downtown Milford, Inc. (DE) (DMI) in the planning and writing of facade guidelines for our designated Main Street downtown in 2018. Donna's oversight of the process from beginning to end was exceptional. Meetings were scheduled and organized with appropriate materials and follow-up.  Committee members were kept apprised of the process and progress until the guidelines were completed. In addition, Donna put together not only a hard copy of the guidelines, but a slide presentation used to present the recommendations to the public.

Donna demonstrated a Herculean resolve and determination to see our young organization through the process of creating our first strategic plan. Through it all she calmly, patiently, and persistently prodded to make sure we got the best work product. As a collaborator her willingness to embrace new ideas from the field, such as the Main Street Refresh, and integrate it into her own thinking was impressive. I hope the plan that was developed guides our community and stands as a model for other places to follow. Thank you Donna for your efforts and your many contributions to strengthening Main Street organizations in New Jersey and throughout America. You're a national treasure.
