Happy New Year!
As we begin 2019, DCEDC is continuing its work to assist our local industries grow investment and jobs in an ever-changing and increasingly challenging environment. How well we do in meeting this goal will largely depend on industry communicating with us on their needs. We know workforce, infrastructure, funding and local government collaboration to fuel growth are top of mind, but we need to hear your voice to understand how we can best serve your interests.
It has been two years since I came to Davidson County to build on our successful program of work to secure a better standard of living for the people of Davidson County. In that time, new and existing industry announcements have been made that will add almost $1 Billion to our tax base plus create over 900 new jobs over the next ten to fifteen years as these companies reach full utilization of their sites. This momentum is leading to increased private retail, commercial and residential development that may add another $200 Million of investment growth to our tax base in the next 2-5 years. To continue growing Davidson County, our diverse team of business, education and government leaders will continue working together in 2019 to solve challenges including:
- developing a sustained pipeline of trained career professionals across all sectors
- making doing business easier and more productive for companies located in Davidson County as well as those wishing to locate here
- continuous improvement in building national and international awareness of our business and lifestyle assets and
- advancing implementation of the infrastructure and product development necessary for vibrant community growth.
