LAS VEGAS - Last week, Cottage Grove Mayor Myron Bailey and City Council member Steve Dennis attended the International Council of Shopping Centers annual RECon conference in Las Vegas.

They were there to promote the city of Cottage Grove for economic development purposes.

The event — the largest of its kind — hosts over 37,000 attendees and contains hundreds of exhibitors across the spectrum of finance, developers, franchise operations, architects and brick and mortar investors.

Dennis said that one of their goals is to fill their empty retail spaces.
