On Tuesday, Wyndham was the featured speaker during the monthly meeting of the Clay County Chamber of Commerce at the Renaissance Reception and Conference Center.
During his presentation, Wyndham told chamber members he believed 2013 would bring a lot of changes to the City of Brazil.
"Some great things are going to happen in this city in a short amount of time," Wyndham said.
Wyndham told those in attendance work on the Pogue's Run project is nearly complete, which will pave the way for the state to begin work on the United States 40 project.
"We've got our ducks in a row," he said. "The wheels are in motion."
The U.S. 40 project, which has been in the works for several years, will call for a wider road through the city, new sidewalks, curbs and gutters, among other items.
Wyndham said he believes the project can only help the city in the long run.
"You have one shot at a first impression," he said. "It's going to look beautiful, and that's a big deal. By changing the look ... it changes the attitude.
"There is opportunity here. We have a great community spirit. There will be growing pains, but I want you to embrace this project, not be afraid of it. Once this is done, it will attract people to this community."
During the presentation, Wyndham also discussed the state of the city and how his first year in office went.
"It's been an exciting year for me," he said. "We're moving in the right direction. There has been a lot of progress."
Wyndham provided updates from each city department.
For example, he said he was pleased with how the Forest Park Golf Board increased its revenue by 43 percent last year.
"They have the right goals to make things work," Wyndham said.
In addition, he said through the National Stabilization Project (NSP) -- a project spearheaded by the Planning and Zoning Department -- local realtors helped with the selling of several of the new homes that were built in 2012.
"This helps revitalize the area," he said.
Wyndham said the Brazil Street Department was able to purchase additional equipment, which has helped.
"Those guys work very hard with what they have to work with," he said, adding helping the street department was a top priority heading into office.
Wyndham said some cost-saving ideas were implemented in his first year, which helped create additional money for the city to use on various projects, including city streets.
"The city streets are a big issue," he said. "They need attention."
Wyndham said blacktop would be used on several city streets this year, making travel smoother.
"I'll guarantee it," he said. "We're moving forward. I feel like our departments are in pretty good shape. We all have the same common goals.
"(I want you to) feel good about where we're at. We're in a good place."
