Business Expansion


Innovation and Education is Key

Our Business Retention & Expansion Program is designed primarily to assist local businesses, but also serves to enhance the competitiveness through improving our business climate through surveys, education and policies including:

  • Enable community leaders to define the strengths and weaknesses of the local economy as identified by existing businesses and workers
  • Use feedback data to develop, prioritize, and implement actionable items and policies that best address local business needs
  • Develop a narrative of the local economy
  • Create direct lines of communication between elected leadership makers and local industry
