Economic Development

Effectively balancing environmental issues with economic realities

Our economic development services are designed to assist communities of any size in creating an economic roadmap through market-based planning and focused implementation. Recognized for their effectiveness by a number of state development and planning associations, economic development has been a core service offered by Vierbicher since opening our doors over 45 years ago. The first step in developing successful economic development programs is conducting a thorough community assessment with input from community members, elected officials and stakeholders.
Using information from the community assessment, we use a market-based approach to prepare an implementation plan that is within the capacity of community organizations to implement and in line with fiscal possibilities. We also serve as an active and trusted advisor to assist clients with implementation. Effective economic programs require a proactive approach, and our implementation services are not one size fits all. We utilize a “boots on the ground” mentality to maintain contact with stakeholders and prospects, because we know that any successful plan must focus on the execution of identified strategies.
