Plan of Action
At the Morton EDC, we believe that careful planning is the foundation for successful action. Therefore, the Morton EDC Board of Directors develops a Plan of Action every two years to allocate our resources to the projects and tasks we feel will most impact the community and support our mission. Our current plan focuses on five key areas:
Business Expansion and Retention
Assisting local employers with challenges that threaten to impede their growth including workforce recruitment and retention, workforce training, product and service promotion, cost saving measures, and infrastructure needs.
Recruiting a diverse mix of community-minded employers that offer employment opportunities with attractive wages, benefits, and work environment.
Recruiting retail businesses that assist employers with recruiting and retaining their employees by enhancing the quality of life for local residents.
Identifying and helping local entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses in Morton by providing training, mentoring, networking, and financial assistance.
Strengthening Morton’s downtown district through programs and activities that assist current businesses, recruiting new businesses, and improving the overall appearance and infrastructure of the downtown area.
