Our mission is to generate the sustained economic growth of the county by encouraging new investment, and creation of value added full-time employment, while maintaining the area’s abundant natural and man-made resources.
Economic Development is not just a real estate marketing effort to entice businesses to relocate into a community. Today, economic development is truly about enhancing quality of life. It’s about increasing per capita wages, training a workforce, and enhancing infrastructure that in turn protects and enhances our area’s natural resources.
Economic development encompasses not only business expansion and retention–it also addresses tourism, community development, workforce development and environmental protection.
