My economic development idea is...

Citizens Appointed Economic Development Commission

The city council should create an economic development commission, appointed by the council, in which local residents serve a two or four year term similar to other commissions. This commission would focus on economic development opportunities vital to our community year round while interfacing with the city council economic development sub-committee.

    I think this is an interesting idea, and I'd like to add to it - what about dedicated staff to focus on economic development. I understand this is a portion of one person's job (who does many roles!!) but is there an opportunity to have dedicated staff bringing in new sources of revenue? Shouldn't this be a key priority, and this individual could also be a part of the Visitatcion revitalization idea?
