Industry & Businesses
A healthy community looks at its strengths and assesses its needs and opportunities for improvement.
JCGA leaders are spearheading initiatives to improve and enhance services for a positive business environment and to maintain job growth and a high quality of life for our citizens.
Manufacturing and Engineering
The first of several economic/business summits was hosted by JCGA, Jefferson College and the Economic Development Corporation(EDC) this fall when manufacturing plant and engineering company representatives were invited to discuss their needs. Strategic leaders, human resource officials, and other representatives from manufacturing/engineering provided input on key areas:
- Talent Attraction
- Workforce Development and Training
- Educational Attainment
- Plant Expansion
- Broadband Access
- Riverfront and Waterway Access
- Roadway Infrastructure
- Trade and Exporting
JCGA will continue to partner and convene additional Business Summits throughout the year, engaging different segments of the community, i.e. small business and community resources. Discussion from business owners and service providers will help us develop put in place plans to streamline services, support and promote existing and new organizations and industries and their growth.
One Plan, One Voice
