Economic development meeting May 15

WELTON — Local residents can trade ideas on creating jobs and economic growth with one of Iowa’s leading economists, David Swenson, on Thursday, May 15.

The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Buzzy’s in Welton. State Sen. Rita Hart, with help from the Clinton County Board of Supervisors, asked Swenson to study the economic data and the trends for Clinton County.

At the event, Dr. Swenson will share what he has learned and offer suggestions on building a more prosperous Clinton County.

Senator Rita Hart hopes Clinton County residents will help her and other local leaders consider new ideas to encourage economic activity and new jobs, especially in our smaller towns and rural communities.

Dr. Swenson is a graduate faculty member in Iowa State University’s Community and Regional Planning program and the graduate program in Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Iowa.
