Creative Rural Economic Development
Mexia, like other rural communities are working to be creative about how we do economic development. The “smokestack” chasing of 20 years ago is not as likely to net new jobs in our community (although we still follow leads and welcome manufacturing to our community!) The linked article is a great example of “Outside the Box” thinking when it comes to economic development! At Mexia EDC we welcome small entrepreneurs, encourage creative endeavors, and support our existing businesses as they work to grow and diversify in the global economy.
