City Seeks Community, Business Leaders to Serve on Task Force
As a component of creating a Wilsonville economic-development strategy, the City is moving forward with “part two” of the process. The first phase, guided by a committee of community and business leaders, established key elements of the strategy and set a timeline for a number of further processes and tasks to be accomplished.
The second phase, also to be guided by a citizen task force, initially focuses on defining characteristics of businesses and economic sectors that would provide the greatest community benefit for potential retention/recruitment activities by the City; and then seeks to determine what kinds of financial incentives, if any, and under what circumstances the community would support, that encourage the retention or recruitment of these kinds of businesses.
The task force would meet over the next six months starting in October, with a goal of providing recommendations to the City Council in February 2013. For more information, contact Mark Ottenad, Public/Government Affairs Director, at 503-570-1505; firstname.lastname@example.org.
