Eastman-Dodge County Chamber Addresses Community Need | Business
On Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 8 a.m. in the Chamber Hall, the Eastman-Dodge County Chamber of Commerce and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government will host a community meeting designed to unite all Dodge County governing body members and their executive managers for a proactive discussion on the economic process in Dodge County. Members of the Eastman-Dodge County Chamber of Commerce will be joined by members of the Dodge County-Eastman Development Authority, City of Eastman, Heart of Georgia Regional Airport Authority, Dodge County Board of Commissioners, and Superintendent of Board of Education.
The Chamber recognizes to be effective in boosting and growing the economy of Dodge County, our community leaders need to agree on a specific plan of action for economic development. Structuring a plan would serve as a common goal for job creation, increase of the tax base, solidification of each entity’s role is essential. An immediate action plan is necessary for Dodge County to benefit. The Institute of Government will have three Community Developers to lead us in an overall plan.
The Agenda will focus on:
- Process of Economic Development
- Future Growth
- Infrastructure Plans (gas, water, and sewer)
Economic development affects all Dodge County citizens. A constructive Plan will give everyone the tools for action steps for the county as a whole. Keeping a strong economy for Dodge County requires a definitive, short- and long term plan that will spark growth in many sectors, including industry, small business, downtown development, and tourism.
Coffee and light breakfast at 8:00 a.m. the meeting will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. with plans for dismissal 3:30 p.m.
