Planning Our Future

Since the start of the recession, the U.S. has seen a precipitous drop in production, a staggering loss of jobs, and an unprecedented decline in consumer spending. While signs of recovery are on the horizon, the current situation forces us to think about how the future will unfold, and what our options for dealing with it will be. The West Kentucky Workforce Investment Board (WKWIB) and the Purchase Area Development District (Purchase ADD) are asking for your help to ensure that our region is prepared for the future.

With funding support from the U.S. Department of Labor, the WKWIB and the Purchase ADD are undertaking a planning process that will help position our region to leverage our opportunities and assets. Led by Austin-based TIP Strategies, the planning process will include a review of existing information about the region, a quantitative analysis, and discussions with stakeholders throughout the region, including a series of opportunity workshops that will be held in each county. The resulting document will provide recommendations for improving the region's future economic vitality.
