HEDC and McDowell Group hosted a community meeting to kick-off the Baseline Economic Data Study and Five-year Economic Development Plan projects on February 5, 2018 at the Haines Library. More than 50 people attended two presentations to hear about the projects, ask questions and give input. Thank you to everyone who came and we hope you stay involved over the next six months as we work on these projects. Please spread the word to your friends, family and neighbors. Community involvement and input is critical for success in this economic planning project.
Susan Bell and Jim Calvin used this PowerPoint presentation as part of the meeting.
As part of our working agreement with the Haines Borough, HEDC is focused on coordinating two important studies over the next six months; a Haines Baseline Economic Data Report and a Five-year Economic Development plan for Haines. The HEDC board chose to work with McDowell Group to conduct these studies. Below are the proposals submitted by McDowell Group. The board is still finalizing details with McDowell and we will update information here as the studies get underway.
