The Tucker County Development Authority, the county’s economic development entity, announced that its board of directors is holding strategic planning sessions to chart the course for the organization’s future growth and success. The all-volunteer board is composed of 13 Tucker County citizens who represent all geographic areas of the county including each of the incorporated communities.
Two sessions will be held this spring and will involve board members as well as members of the County Commission. The purpose of these sessions is to review the current state of the organization and provide an opportunity for board members to work in smaller groups to discuss economic development issues that need to be addressed and set goals. The Tucker County Development Authority has been actively working diligently on a variety of projects related to business development, wastewater infrastructure, broadband deployment, and preparing the industrial park for additional tenants.
During the planning sessions, the participants will review economic trends, identify strengths and opportunities, and develop action plans for achieving key objectives. The process is guided by an experienced facilitator who ensures that all voices are heard and that the group remains focused on the task at hand.
“We believe that this strategic planning process will be instrumental in helping us to achieve our long-term goals and position us for continued success,” said Steve Leyh, Executive Director at the Tucker County Development Authority. “We are committed to working collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure that our organization remains a trusted resource that continues to deliver exceptional value to our business community and the citizens of the county.”
The Tucker County Development Authority expects to share the outcomes of the strategic planning sessions in the coming months, as the organization moves forward with implementing the new strategies and initiatives identified during this process.
