EDC Strategic Initiative: Ensuring Quality for Clay County Growth
In 2013, the Clay County Economic Development Council created the Strategic Planning Initiative to develop a comprehensive strategy for Clay County growth. As noted by Co-Chairs Greg Canuteson and Jerry Nolte, “…the question is not if Clay County will grow, but how it will grow.”
The Initiative held a series of six forums throughout the county that targeted topics ranging from infrastructure to education. Throughout, input from members of the public and leaders in related industries presented information and asked questions.
From this input, the initiative identified several target efforts
Entering 2014, the Initiative formed Task Forces to focus on these key areas. These Task Forces include:
