#3 Economic Development
Economic development is a complex, multifaceted process. There are many definitions of economic development, but none that encompasses all of the various aspects of the profession.
There is no one single policy, process or template for achieving a strong economy, as each community or region has various strengths and areas of needed improvement.
Economic development is a process that influences the growth and wellbeing of a community through a variety of different means, such as business retention and expansion, industry attraction, improved tax base and a reasonable quality of life.
There are a wide variety of strategies and initiatives that ensure a healthy economy in communities. Allowing small businesses to grow, attraction of an industry and retaining existing opportunities, securing access to capital, and marketing and communications are just some of the facets to enhance and sustain the economy in a community.
