What is the county’s Business Retention and Expansion Program?
The Business Retention and Expansion Program is designed to gather information to help the county better support business expansion, job retention, job creation, and increased investment in the community.
As part of the program, Community Development staff will visit local businesses to obtain comprehensive information regarding the opportunities and challenges that exist for local business owners.
The visits are geared toward small and large businesses so that everyone can participate in the economic renewal process. After the site visits, businesses will receive help with particular issues. The data collected through the program will be used to create a long-range economic development action plan, which will include specific objectives, action items and target dates. The plan will be shared with the business community.
