Economic Development Plan Community Meeting
March 30, 2017
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Grand Plaza, Entrance #11
Help Align Amarillo’s Economic Development Future
Amarillo, TX – This Thursday, March 30, the City of Amarillo, Amarillo Economic Development Corporation (AEDC), and Avalanche Consulting is offering an opportunity for the public to discuss Amarillo’s economic future. The meeting will be in the Amarillo Civic Center Complex Grand Plaza from 6 – 7 p.m.
Avalanche Consulting will lead the forum and discuss the importance of creating a community’s economic vision and will share some examples from other successful communities. They will then outline five to six topic areas and ask attendees to write their ideas about their vision and community values in breakout groups focused on areas such as education, industry, and quality of life.
Community input is critical and in addition to attending the meeting, residents and business owners are asked to complete the online Community & Business Survey located at alignamarillo.com. Economic development is vital to all communities, and careful planning results in proactive initiatives that can better serve residents by addressing major needs in a community or by taking full advantage of existing assets. The plan, co-funded by the City and the AEDC, should be completed by June 2017.
