District 12 is resilient. Parts of Hot Springs Village, Fountain Lake, Mountain Valley and Mountain Pine, suffered devastating losses in a tornado in 2011. Although there have been huge losses, physically and economically, District 12 has never given up. The communities have rebuilt homes, businesses, and lives to be better than before. Economic development is moving forward with projects, not only along the Highway 7 corridor, but also in the town of Mountain Pine.
