The county’s new Economic Vitality Administrator Greg Fisher discussed various economic development incentives with council Tuesday evening.
“One of the main concerns in all the county’s strategic goals, is that we need to grow the population,” Fisher said.
He recommended going for the “low hanging fruit.”
“It’s interesting to be in a community where there are more jobs than there are people. There are 7,000 or 8,000 people climbing the mountain every day to come here to work. It’s a great opportunity to get them to live here,” he said.
