Creating a Strong Economy


We help local businesses grow by taking the lead in programs and efforts that create a strong local economy and make our community a great place to do business.

Here are some examples of how we create a strong economy:

  • Working with governmental agency partners to develop processes of cooperation between agencies and the business community to foster a positive and responsible climate for economic development.

  • Co-sponsoring the Southern Oregon Business Conference to help business professionals learn about issues impacting southern Oregon.

  • Supporting education initiatives.

  • Supporting family wage jobs and firms.

  • Focusing on tourism to increase revenue to businesses in our communities.

  • Facilitating community input on issues such as transportation, technology, health care, education, legislation, etc. and strategizing ways to meet the needs of the community.

  • Working on government policies that promote, rather than inhibit, job-creating investments in technology.

  • Gleaning public support and reducing the red tape and regulations that can delay vital projects.

  • Improving access to insurance for those who don’t have it, without jeopardizing the coverage of those who do.
