The Stay Here * Grow Here program is supported by the Economic Development Department’s Strategic Plan and the City’s Comprehensive Master Plan (PLANoblesville).
One of the primary goals of this program is to enhance the Noblesville business climate in order to grow the local economy from within and maintain sustainability across all business sectors. This goal identifies the importance of a focused effort on retaining existing businesses, helping them grow here, and providing the tools and support they need to be successful in Noblesville.
With at least 60% of new jobs coming from businesses that are already located in our community, it is important to understand their challenges and needs and to provide them with the tools to foster success here. Collaboration supports our objective to make Noblesville an economically viable and business friendly place to be.
A formal business retention and expansion program is also supported by the City’s Comprehensive Master Plan. Action steps identified by the Comprehensive Master Plan include, but are not limited to:
The continuation of industry roundtable discussions
A formal business visitation program and surveys
Improved communication and relationships with the City’s existing businesses
The customer experience is the next competitive battleground. - Jerry Gregoire
