ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT & COMMUNITY RESILIENCY
targeted strategies to build strong, resilient communities.
Amidst the powerful forces of globalization, urban migration, and technological change, local decision-makers are recognizing that traditional economic development is no longer sufficient. In order to adapt to the future, leaders must work to build resilient communities that align economic, quality of place, and talent development efforts to create sustainable growth.
Our economic development approach aims to achieve community resiliency through economic diversity, resource alignment, and community vibrancy. Through thoughtful analysis, comprehensive strategy development, and a clear vision to create data-driven recommendations and solutions to complex problems, we will work with you to identify where your community may be vulnerable and craft strategies to capitalize on emerging opportunities. Whether you are a rural community looking to attract new industry and workforce, an established industrial market looking to diversify, or a vibrant economy needing to plan appropriately for growth, our team will partner with you to create community-based data-driven solutions to foster success and quality of life.
