As part of its strategic planning process, Greenbrier Valley Economic Development Corporation is holding stakeholder sessions in Pocahontas, Monroe and Greenbrier counties in April.
“As we look forward in defining the work of the Greenbrier Valley EDC in facilitating economic growth, it is imperative that we hear from the businesses and the communities we serve,” says Ruthana Beezley, executive director.
Greenbrier Valley EDC is holding meetings in each county to gather input:
• Monroe County: Apr. 18, Monroe Motors Showroom, Main Street, Union
• Pocahontas County: Apr. 19, Marlinton Municipal Auditorium
• Greenbrier County: Apr. 20, WV State Fairgrounds, Gus R. Douglass Annex
Existing businesses will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon each day. Stakeholders – including community leaders, agencies, nonprofits, banks, realtors and other community members – will meet 1 to 2:30 p.m. each day. Individuals are asked to RSVP to email@example.com
In January 2023, Greenbrier Valley EDC hired InSite Consulting to lead the strategic planning efforts of the regional economic development authority. The team has been traveling throughout the region visiting industrial/commercial properties, identifying growth potential, and meeting with utility service providers to recognize capacity opportunities.
The next step in this planning process is meeting with existing companies, community leaders and stakeholders to allow InSite a true boots-on-the-ground view of what’s happening across the region and gain critical input.
Headquartered in Greenville, SC, InSite Consulting is a leading provider of comprehensive site selection and economic development services to clients around the world. InSite was founded in 2004 by Tonya Crist and Rob Cornwell, who together have 50-plus years of combined experience in executing both site location studies and economic development and marketing services across the globe.
The US Economic Development Administration funded the Greenbrier Valley EDC strategic planning efforts. For additional information, please call 304-497-4300, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
