Kosciusko County is a global leader in attractive industries.  We can leverage that position for even greater success—but not without a plan and a comprehensive effort.

  • Our four-pronged strategic plan starts with “retention.”  We believe that if we focus on understanding the needs and challenges of existing local business, we can help those companies thrive.
  • The second part of our plan is “expansion.”
  • “Attraction” is the next element in our strategic plan.
  • Finally, the fourth element of our plan, “Innovation,” must be woven throughout everything we do.  Maintaining and inspiring a local culture of innovation can keep local companies competitive and attract investment from outside our community.
