Economic Development: From Yesterday to Tomorrow
Public and private economic development organizations are experiencing more and more competitive challenges to job attraction, retention and creation. To compete, sophisticated analyses and strategies are required.
We have extensive experience assisting clients with various public funding programs, including tax increment financing, tax abatement, special business/community/transportation improvement districts, redevelopment powers and enterprise zones. Our analysis often extends to define the needs for public infrastructure investments, identifying targeted industries and services, and assessing business expansion needs and effects of industry/business relocation.
Singular actions or investments are no longer sufficient to meaningfully influence large and diverse economies. Comprehensive initiatives must be envisioned, executed and coordinated. Development Strategies is uniquely qualified to help local communities and regional development organizations meet these new challenges.
