Fairview Heights Economic Development Strategy
The i5Group, along with Community and Economic Development Solutions, Colliers International, and Lochmueller Group, is leading an economic development strategy for the City of Fairview Heights. The strategy will position the City on its path toward a resilient economy by creating a vision around which the City with its public, private and institutional partners can coalesce efforts to drive investment and growth for the community.
The Economic Development Strategy will become a “tool kit” adopted by the City. Implementation is to include: recommendations on policy changes for the City to achieve economic growth; recommendations for any structural changes needed within the City’s Economic Development Department; increased collaboration between the City’s Economic Development Department and other economic development network partners that could bring greater economies of scale and help achieve strategic objectives; and identifying metrics for the City to track progress.
