Why is Economic Development Important to the Economy?
Economic Development is the creation of wealth from which community benefits are realized. RAEDI and the programs we implement are an investment in growing and sustaining our local economy. RAEDI helps support area businesses who contribute to the workforce and the tax base, which in turn, provides resources to fund services residents need to have a good quality of life. A key path to growing our local economy is by investing in economic development to ensure our area businesses are successful.
