Notes on Economic Development

Economic Development Strategies from 2011
  • Workforce Education: In Progress – to be facilitated by OneWorkSource Career Center with help of Hamilton County Workforce Investment Board.
  • Marketing to attract new businesses: In progress and needs revision – Branding Group working on this but think we need a component to also attract residents to move here.
  • Business Education: In Progress / needs revision: ILCC and Library can revitalize this offering. Bring in AEDC for Business development and growth.
  • Improved infrastructure – cell, broadband, DSL: Cell tower completed; Others in progress- what’s the status of the Hamilton County broadband grant for $17,000?
  • Strengthen home based business: In progress. ADK teleworks making some headway; need to cultivate the home based businesses to realize they are also teleworkers. Idea: look into what programs ANCA may have in place for helping ADK artisans, etc.
  • Distance Learning: In Progress- ILCS has DL room and we think they could use another; there is funding for this through USDA Rural Communities Distance Learning grants.
