Elected Official's Guide to Economic Development
Elected officials and public managers have intensified economic development activities in recent years. Indeed, the role of government as a vehicle to promote job creation and stabilize the economy is something citizens have now come to expect. Interest in economic development is nearly universal: jurisdictions that are fiscally stable use development tools to enhance the tax base while those that are fiscally stressed rely on economic development initiatives to improve the business climate and thereby increase tax revenue. An Elected Official’s Guide: Economic Development answers fundamental questions concerning the role of state and local governments in economic development. Armed with an understanding of key issues and common practices, elected officials will more easily provide their communities with a stable and productive economic base.
