Attracting new business to Johnson County is an essential element of economic development, but business retention and expansion efforts are key, since most new jobs and investment come from companies already operating here. This is the second installment in a series of articles about local economic development efforts. Read more about business retention and expansion, and how it works.

Slow internet speeds? Do not let the turkey and mashed potatoes fog your memory this week. Homeowners and businesses have until this Sunday, Nov. 28, to petition the State to be considered for broadband expansion through the Indiana Connectivity Program. A location must have access to actual speeds of less than 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload to be eligible. Those interested can submit information online through the Next Level Connections portal at

Did you know? The Aspire website features a sites and buildings database with industrial, warehouse, and class A zoned properties and buildings available for sale or lease. When you brag to your friends and family this weekend about Johnson County’s great business climate, also tell them to visit Aspire’s sites and buildings website.
After all, you can’t pick your family, but you can pick your neighbors …business neighbors, that is! Visit the database here. And check out November’s featured property, Greenwood Park At 65 South.
Aspire is thankful to T&W Design & Build for partnering with us to build the database!
