Economic Health & Outreach to Small Communities
Continue to support city and county-wide economic development as stated in the LWV Montgomery County position, including support for county-wide planning and zoning.
Continue to work with small communities interested in pursuing “Build a Better Community” forums and the Small Community Network, as needed. Possible action includes hosting a meeting of town board presidents and clerk treasurers to understand their accomplishments and needs.
Study local workforce development issues, including the challenges of recruiting and keeping workers, educational challenges, and incentives for assisting local industries that want to expand as well as attracting new industries. Possible action includes the development of metrics for assessing economic health of the community and a publication of an annual community economic health fact sheet, using those metrics and sharing our data.
