Mayor Tyler Gandam has issued a statement on the occasion of Economic Development Week, May 8–12.
Economic Development Week gives us the opportunity to appreciate the work that goes into the growth and development a community experiences because our professionals have put in countless hours behind the scenes to showcase our city’s potential.
Economic development is a marathon! The seeds that are being planted by our team today, won’t be seen for a few years (or longer), as it takes time to build relationships and trust. The new development you’re seeing today likely started a few years ago.
This week, let’s take a moment to celebrate and recognize the contributions made by professional economic developers to create more economically vibrant and livable communities.
