County unveils development portal

Montgomery County is unveiling a new marketing and economic development web site,

The online portal, designed by a Minnesota company, is meant to attract business site selectors and retain businesses who call Montgomery County home.

“We are excited that this website ties together our previous marketing campaigns and serves as an anchor for our future marketing and business attraction efforts,” said County Commission President Dan Foley. “Site selectors, economic development professionals and businesses will immediately see the advantages of locating and expanding in Montgomery County.”

County government selected the Golden Shovel Agency, based in Little Falls, Minn., to create the web site.

“This national economic development communications firm is recognized for their award-winning design and expertise in business and workforce attraction,” the county said.

“The staff at Montgomery County were ambitious about putting together a best practices resource to expand and grow business; they accomplished that goal,” Aaron Brossoit, Golden Shovel chief executive, said in the county’s announcement on the web site.

Montgomery County Development Services combines economic development, community development, workforce, planning, and building resources at the site.

“Each section of the site has further links to additional resources and best practices, including the building regulations department which includes everything developers need to locate and build in Montgomery County, as well as project success checklists to more easily guide residential and commercial builders of all experience levels,” the county said.
