Job Growth in Davie County – 2014 Economic Development Highlights
2014 was an outstanding year of growing opportunity for businesses and citizens. Davie County and the Davie County Economic Development Commission continue to play a leadership role in job creation.
In late 2013, the Davie County Economic Development Commission set a goal to raise $1,000,000 over the next five years to implement a strategic plan to create jobs and grow the local economy. The plan, “Together we are Davie!” has as its fundamental goals to realize more than $100,000,000 in new capital investment and to create 1,200 new primary jobs over five years.
The five-year economic growth initiative will utilize five key strategies to achieve the plan’s goals: New Business Recruitment, Business Retention and Expansion, Workforce Development, Product Development and an Opportunity Fund.
