Grow the Middle focus and goals
Develop Decatur as an attractive location for creation and growth of mid-tier businesses. Provide concierge-level support services to help grow businesses and increase employment.
Tier 3 - Support Imperative
- There is a clear initiative with clear “owners” for this imperative: the development of a Business Development Resource Center appears to be moving forward, sponsored by the Economic Development Corporation, the City of Decatur, the Chamber of Commerce, Millikin University and Richland Community College.
- Grow Decatur will provide support and advocacy assistance as needed.
