ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

 

The firm has assisted communities with the development of strategic economic development plans as a freestanding process or as a component of a comprehensive plan. Demographic and economic census research and compilation, market research, real estate and site analysis, business and industrial trends, and community input are used to help shape a workable plan both strategic and actionable. 

The firm has assisted with market analysis and economic restructuring plans for Virginia's downtowns and neighborhood retail centers and analyzed the market and impact of planned housing development/ redevelopment projects. We are capable of assisting with grant applications and project management assistance for creating specific economic development infrastructure such as visitor centers and other tourism assets, business incubators, and industrial parks. The firm is also capable of assembling economic impact analyses in support of targeted projects. Recent clients include the Alleghany Foundation, Brunswick County/Brunswick County IDA, Mathews County, the Cities of Emporia and Galax, and the Towns of Keysville and Stuart, all Virginia entities. 

We are capable of providing targeted and project specific market studies, economic feasibility reports, and economic impact analyses. Recent clients include Galax, Pennington Gap, and Brunswick County, all localities within the Commonwealth of Virginia.
