A survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau says that, for the first time in nearly 30 years, the share of people in the U-20 and U-30 classes participating in business-related activities, or the “meeting millers,” is up significantly.
This is the first rise in the share in the past 15 years, and it comes as the Uptown Farmer’s Association has raised concerns about the lack of economic development opportunities in the city.
It says the trend could be good news for local businesses.
But the meeting millers aren’t the only people getting in on the action.
Some of the most innovative and creative farmers are also participating, and this could be one area that can benefit from the increased business activity.
The survey was conducted last year, so the numbers might not reflect the current trends.
But a lot of people are getting involved.
For example, a group of 10-12 meeting miller entrepreneurs are hosting a series of events in the neighborhood.
The farmers and entrepreneurs are encouraging people to connect with each other, and they want to work together to build their own businesses.
The meeting mill operators are hosting events, too.

“It’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, and learn from each other and share what we have in common,” said Jim DeMarco, owner of a meeting mill and one of the organizers of the meet the maker event.
In the Uttown Farmer, the farmers are starting the year with a new mission: To help their neighbors and the city with issues that matter most to them, such as food and housing, transportation, economic development, transportation congestion and the environment.
In a recent meeting, they discussed how they are working to meet more of the needs of their community.
As more people become involved in meeting the maker, there is a greater likelihood that the city will start to see some economic growth in the coming years.
According to the UPTOWN FAIR, there are more than 2,000 meeting mill people in Upton, with a total of 2,049 in the metro area.
If all the meeting mills are participating in a meeting in Ucton, that means that more than half of Uptons businesses are meeting at the same location, said Chris Roussel, Uptowner.
“The number of businesses is just exploding,” he said.
The Uptontown Farmer and its leaders are working together to make Uptonia a better place to live, work and play.
