Our Goal: Regional economic growth creates opportunities for residents and enterprises.

The Difference We Want to Make: The regional economy is home to a skilled workforce and thriving enterprises, and continues to foster a strong sense of place.

Our Point of View: A diverse regional economy supports job growth, improves wages, and raises the standard of living for residents.  Creating synergies between our workforce, enterprises, institutions, and quality of place will contribute to community vibrancy.  A prosperous community can shape its future and invest in its social, environmental, and cultural values.
