Air and Industrial Park Planning Strategy – Focus Group Discussions

For Immediate Release

July 24, 2019

Business and Airport/Industrial Park tenant input sought in the development of a planning strategy for the Chippewa County Air and Industrial Park. Please refer to the attached letter of invitation for your opportunity to participate in this process.

Chippewa County EDC is seeking input from the local business community, airport and industrial park tenants as part of a process to support the planning strategy. The planning strategy will allow the county to access various opportunities to ensure that it reflects the reality of the region and the assets and activities for the park and airport. 

Specific feedback requested from the business community, airport and industrial park tenants will help guide and influence the county’s current and future infrastructure requirements along with recommendations on aviation and non-aviation related developments and services.

“The process of developing the planning strategy will help the county achieve its goals detailed in the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) and its strategic plan,” stated Chippewa County EDC President Chris Olson. “We’re very interested in what our business community wants to see at our Chippewa County Air and Industrial Park, so we are really encouraging the business community at large to take this opportunity to have their say.”

A number of focus groups and one-on-one meetings are scheduled to take place locally August 20-21, 2019 and our office will be assisting in the outreach for community participation.

The Chippewa County would like to thank all survey participants in advance for their input.
