Economic Development Plan: Promoting sustainable development and attracting new jobs and investment.
Long ingrained in the city’s redevelopment vision, OHM Advisors partnered with city leadership to create the new five-year economic development plan for strategic growth. First, we broke the city into five focus areas based on existing usage and zoning. Then we studied existing market conditions and interviewed stakeholders to understand the city’s economic potential and the community need within each area. From there, we created tangible strategies, based on market realities, for specific development types in each area. The plan provides the city with guiding principles to ensure resources are used efficiently and that plans for future development are targeted to areas with the greatest economic potential.
