Goal 6 - Economic Vitality

Goal 6: Achieve a vital, diverse, and sustainable economy in which businesses and residents have opportunities for success.

 

Why is this goal important?

The prosperity of a community is tied directly to the success of its economy.   A strong economy translates into jobs and opportunities for individuals, fosters the creation of wealth and philanthropy, and creates a stable tax base to pay for needed public infrastructure and services.   It is important to have an economy that is broad based, without too much reliance on one firm or one industry.  This helps alleviate the risks associated with over-dependence on one or two economic sectors.
