On Dec. 2, the Fairfield 33 Development Alliance announced its 2009 marketing plans, which are designed to encourage new investment and job growth in the Fairfield 33 corridor.
Forty private and public sector investors contributed $156,000 to the Alliance for 2008.
"Now more than ever, we need coordinated efforts and tools to retain and attract jobs for our region. We believe we now have that," said Steve Wells, vice chair of the Fairfield 33 Development Alliance.
Canal Winchester Development Director Chris Strayer and Pickerington Planning and Zoning Director Lance Schultz highlighted the Alliance’s 2009 budget and marketing plans.
"The Alliance budget stands at $151,900," said Schultz. "About 90 percent of the budget will be used to market the corridor for new investment and jobs, which is the Alliance’s primary mission."
"The Alliance will utilize advertising and partnerships in greater Columbus to introduce the corridor on a regional basis," added Strayer.
The Fairfield 33 Development Alliance is a public-private partnership designed to encourage investment and job growth in the Fairfield 33 corridor, which stretches along U.S. 33 from including Canal Winchester, Pickerington, Violet Township, Bloom Township, Greenfield Township, and Lancaster.
