The subject of economic development is always a big deal for business publications. We have to cover it. We're actually covering economic development in every issue at all times all year long with the stories we bring you about this business and that business and what they're doing in big and small ways. But the broader topic—as in how a community or region should approach the building or sustaining of a local market economy—is something a select group of individuals and organizations gets to do as their top mission. While we're all busy and scurrying around getting our work done, those in the economic development field are trying to establish an environment where that scurrying can continue to take place. This edition of FRONT shows you their perspectives on the important task at hand.
When you stop scurrying you get behind.
We'd rather be in FRONT.
