JREDC: Building on last year's success with increased opportunities
Monday, March 02, 2020
The Jacksonville Regional Economic Development Corp. recently hosted our annual meeting with investors and allies as our invited guests. The event allowed our organization the opportunity to recognize two Jacksonville businesses that are actively increasing the economic strength of our region: Reynolds Consumer Products and Cedarhurst Senior Living of Jacksonville. It is forward-thinking businesses like these that provide good-paying jobs for our region and increase the tax base to maintain and improve infrastructure at the local and county levels.
Our efforts were guided by JREDC’s five-year regional plan, adopted by the board of directors in 2018. In addition, the executive board outlined three areas in which our work was to be directed: achieve greater visibility of our organization, explore ways to develop the region’s workforce and build retention strategies to maintain and expand our relationships with current industry leaders and investors.
