In May, 2013, City Council created the Economic Development Study Committee. The committee is comprised of the City’s Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC) and three members of City Council. One of the goals and objectives of City Council in the 2012-2013 Strategic Plan is to create an economic development plan. The City has engaged the services of Arnett, Muldrow & Associates, LLP (Greenville, SC) to facilitate the process and to produce the plan. The economic development planning process kicked off in September, 2013, and will conclude in the spring of 2014.
