The Why

As active citizens and community leaders, we can directly shape our local and regional economies. Here are a few benefits of taking a proactive stance to the future…

Quality of Life

More local tax dollars and jobs results in greater economic stability for the community, which generally increases the overall standard of living of the residents.

Increased Tax Base

Additional revenue to support, maintain, and improve local services such as roads, parks, libraries, and other community services.

Job Creation and Expansion

Local and regional employment opportunities.

Business Retention

Ensuring that local businesses prosper and stay in town. Most new jobs(82%) are creating by existing local businesses.

Economic Diversification

Expanding the economy increases the opportunity for long term sustainability of the community.


Public services would be less dependent on intergovernmental transfers.
