MetRock Forward

To sustainably grow our regional economy, we must continue to focus on assisting our existing companies with issues restricting their growth, while marketing our regional assets to new industries searching for a new site. Today, more than ever before, quality of place is defined by infrastructure, human capital, and vibrancy. All three have to be nurtured to retain and attract people, jobs, and new investment. With your help, we can empower our region to compete and win.

The MetRock Forward economic development campaign will capitalize on proven success by targeting economic, community, and talent development opportunities for regional growth.
