New Communities will work through Phase I of Resora’s incarnation, which includes upgrades to cabins in a large wooded area, upkeep of pecan and orange groves on the farmland, and planning events at the cultural center that includes the restored circa-1851 plantation home.
“My focus will be to bring these three units together,” said Danielle Blackwell, who will soon replace Cutts — who was on hand primarily for the early planning stages of Resora — as director of planning. “We want to make sure all three elements of the property are maintained, and we want the community to realize this is something for all of us.
“We hope to eventually include an inn, a conference center and maybe even a chapel. We hope the community will utilize these facilities.”
