Without the addition of appropriate housing choices, the opportunity to grow our stabilizing population base will not come to fruition. This is a pivotal tipping point for the future of our area and we simply cannot afford to fail. However, as critical as housing options are, we cannot lose sight of downtown revitalization, health and wellness, or the outdoor narrative – all drivers for talent attraction.
Enhance Housing Opportunities
New job commitments have happened at unprecedented rates in the Clark County Community over the past 5 years. However, the full impact of new jobs is less if the jobs do not result in a population increase. The population will grow with an aggressive strategy to attract new and in-fill housing development throughout Clark County, as well as addressing downtown redevelopment, health and wellness, and outdoor living as amenities to housing.
Develop a "Welcoming Committee" for New Business Leaders/Executives
The only way to maximize the impact of business growth is to make certain its leadership feels welcomed and “at-home” in Clark County. Hitching up the welcome wagon and being intentional with appreciation is an essential factor in establishing a strong community connection with businesses. Additional funding will allow for the purposeful engagement of community leaders and equipping thing with resources to welcome new residents and businesses to Clark County.
