Place Value – A Fresh Approach to Economic Development in the West

When: Wednesday, December 17, noon-1pm Mountain Standard Time
Featuring: Clark Anderson & Alison Berry, Sonoran Institute

In our December webinar, we will feature some of our own research, which examines the factors that attract entrepreneurs and an educated workforce to communities in Colorado, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. As the country climbs out of the recession, communities are seeking new approaches to economic development that will give them a competitive advantage in today’s economy.

Looking forward, communities need to be creative about attracting businesses and workers. It is becoming clear that the traditional economic development approach of attracting one major industry through business incentives, long-range tax cuts, or land offerings is not effective in creating a diverse or sustainable local economy. Our results indicate that creating a strong and resilient local economy is tied to creating a great community where people want to live. Join us to learn more!
