Walter added he is working toward making final the Enterprise Park at Calverton subdivision sale and was “cautiously optimistic” it would be completed next year. “I think the majority of the residents feel the town is going in the right direction,” Walter said. “My hope is that if residents feel good about the town, then I’m your guy.”
