“Driving Dickinson County” is the attraction plan initiated by the Dickinson County Economic Development Corporation to promote the region to prospective businesses and workers. Visit https://www.dkedc.com/ to access the newly launched site.
Executive Director of Dickinson County Economic Development Corp., Chuck Scott, believes the new website will help business attraction and engage site selectors. “Upgrading the website became a priority as we introduced our area to site selectors and new businesses,” said Scott. “This is a main source of exposure to gain awareness.”
Good-paying jobs and low housing provide comfortable and safe communities for families, and residents are proud of their excellent school system, healthcare and abundant recreation opportunities.
“The new website revises our marketing and directs visitors to find answers to their questions,” said Chuck Scott, Executive Director. “This site accurately shows the area’s strengths and assets. We are proud of the region and our new website shows our pride.”
The online economic development portal brings business assistance resources together in a central, easy-to-navigate website. Users will find information about available property, business incentives, business climate and demographics as well as employment and education resources.
