Develop This: Economic and Community Development

Jan 12, 2022

In this episode, Jason interviews Garrett Anderson, Economic Development Director for the City of Woodstock, IL.  Garrett is a self-proclaimed data nerd, and they talk incentives, demographics, economic development plans and recovery act funds.

As we know, billions in ARPA funds will be flowing to local governments.  How should communities and adjacent jurisdictions determine the highest and best use of these dollars?  Garrett shares his community's process for project evaluation and the interplay that could come with the county's portion of the funds.

The show was recorded live, on-site at the Mid-America EDC Best Practices conference.
