BR&E Strategies Program

The BR&E Strategies Program helps make local businesses be more competitive by evaluating and addressing some of their key needs and concerns. By addressing common business concerns, the community ensures a healthier future for itself. Businesses that stay competitive are more likely to remain in the community and possibly expand. The program also establishes an economic development plan for the community and a broad-based community coalition to sustain long term economic development efforts.

The BR&E Strategies Program focuses on both short-term and long-term objectives.
