CELEBRATING OUR CLIENTS
 
We're excited to celebrate the holidays AND our clients this month!

Roanoke, VA was featured in a CityLab article, The Small Appalachian City That's Thriving, about its thriving economy and how well Roanoke revitalized its downtown. An initial investment into downtown housing led to a housing boom that turned Roanoke into a destination for young people and investment. Roanoke "created a model this century for how small industrial cities can reinvent themselves."  #WeLoveNoke

The Rio Rancho Observer wrote an article about the findings of our Target Industry Study for the Sandoval Economic Alliance.  The article covers the importance of increasing awareness of the state, county, and city's competitive assets, and the need to attract, retain, and expand businesses.
