Economic Impact Studies

As community leaders evaluate their local economy and learn which specific sectors are competitive in their unique locality, they can make decisions concerning alternative strategies for diversifying their local economy. Our department can assist entrepreneurs in areas such as basic business startup concepts; financial analysis (for example, cash flow, cost/feasibility analysis, and profit forecasting); developing a business plan; and identifying financing opportunities to promote job creation.

Tourism and Customer Service

A prepared community is the foundation of a successful tourism program. As a community or region takes inventory of existing or potential attractions, such as festivals and events, natural resources, historical attractions, and recreation opportunities, local leaders should be mindful that tourism is a highly competitive business. Successful local tourism efforts build on existing strengths.
