In a press release Wednesday, Crawforsdville Mayor Todd Barton announced his return from a very successful business development trip to Atlanta, Ga. Sponsored by the Indiana Municipal Power Agency (IMPA) the trip was designed to allow member communities – like Crawfordsville – an opportunity to showcase themselves with several nationally-recognized site selection firms based in Atlanta. These are firms which specialize in assisting domestic and international companies with where to build their next facility. The two-day trip involved a full agenda and included meetings with consulting firms such as The Austin Company, Cushman Wakefield, and Deloitte. 
According to the release, as a new component of the city’s economic development program, Barton had two primary goals: 1) Build relationships with these key influencers and 2) Build awareness about Crawfordsville and Montgomery County as a solid location to do business. 
“Trips like this are so important because these firms generally work in communities where they understand the business climate and have a relationship with key leaders. Long term it can lead to business generation for the community through the firms,” said the release.
During his face-to-face meetings, Barton was able to discuss what Crawfordsville has to offer as a solid location for business. In doing so, all the firms he met with now have a working knowledge of the advantages of Crawfordsville’s location in the Midwest, and what amenities are available to potential businesses. 
Question of the Week:

Now that the primary is over, how do you feel about the direction Crawfordsville and Montgomery County are heading?
