The Village of Woodlawn, a thriving community located in the heart of Hamilton County, recently renewed its economic development services contract with HCDC, demonstrating its commitment to local businesses.
Here are the top five ways in which the Village is investing its businesses:
1. Start by Building Relationships
Woodlawn takes a one-on-one approach to communicate with businesses. Through outreach sessions, open houses, and partnership with the Woodlawn Chamber, Village officials place a premium on personal connections.
2. Bolster Existing Businesses
An active retention program encourages the continued success of businesses through individual meetings to assess their strengths and challenges, and also to explore ways to increase their competitive advantage.
3. Be Poised for Growth
The Village collaborates with environmental experts, real estate brokers, property owners, and industry experts to understand the factors that will enhance the community as a competitive place to conduct business in a global marketplace.
4. Understand the Past, Look to the Future
Guided by the vision of a coordinated master plan, Woodlawn makes thoughtful, prudent, educated progress that will continue to make the village a great community in the years to come.
5. Sharpen Development Tools
Woodlawn offers tax incentive programs and economic development tools designed to encourage investment. Businesses are guided through the process and educated on what incentives are best suited for their business needs. HCDC stays educated on current and upcoming State and Federal funds and programs.
