Economic Development

A place for development groups to put their information that will effect this area in a positive manner.

Development should be to the top priority of any community or area. Our mission is to create the best business climate we can create. Businesses hire people and shouldn't be used as the sole source of income for a community or area. Since businesses hire people and people and businesses buy property and support the community, it us our belief that both can exist in harmony. It is our job to make sure that this happens.

Why Government Regulations Hinder Rural Development!

I was reading the current issue of my GRM newsletter today and was upset with the way the FCC is trying to set a double standard for the rural areas of Iowa by setting a standard for broadband speed in rural areas that is slower than urban areas. All areas should have equal access to broadband if their suppliers are willing to provide that service. This is a devastating regulation for rural development  when small communities in rural areas are trying to compete for good, clean, high paying jobs with the bigger communities that surround them.
