The Fleetwood BIA is getting its footing, for the second time in its short existence.
The business group's creation was spearheaded in late 2015 by Rick Hart, a man so involved in the community he was referred to as "Mr. Fleetwood."
After Hart's passing in the summer of 2016, following a brief battle with brain cancer, it took some time to find new leadership.
But now, as Fleetwood BIA President Sandeep Gill says: "We've got a new direction, we have a strategy, we have a one-year plan, and we're off the ground running."
That's not to say they have a wildly different vision for the community's future than the late Hart.
"I think, for us longterm, we want to be in simple terms, where Rick Hart thought we should be: The advocate and the voice for Fleetwood," said Gill, who works as a personal injury lawyer and also founded Keystone Law Group.
