ECONOMIC VITALITY COMMITTEE
ECONOMIC VITALITY strengthens a community’s existing economic assets while diversifying its economic base. This is accomplished by retaining an expanding successful business to provide a balanced commercial mix, sharpening the competitiveness and merchandising skills of business owners, and attracting new businesses that the market can support. Converting unused or underused property also helps boost the profitability of the district that responds to the needs of today’s consumers.
