Beginning in July, 2018, the City had an open committee dedicated to the formulation of recommendations to advance the City’s economic development potential. The process included structured meetings, homework and eventually idea building and visioning on potential means for enhancing the economic development potential. In the end, the goal was to work toward closing the imbalance of jobs and housing, spark community vitality and enhancing the City’s collaboration with local and regional partners.
The Final Report and Recommendations are located HERE.
