The Marshall County Commissioners will meet this morning and economic development could be considered.
Jerry Chavez with Marshall County Economic Development will be speaking on the Regional Cities Initiative. Many communities have signed onto the initiative as part of a broader effort to grow the state’s population.
Over the last decade, Indiana has seen population grow from 6-million to 6.4-million residents. Most of that growth is simply the birth rate outpacing the rate of death.
Indiana considers population growth to be a cornerstone of economic development efforts.
The Commissioners will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Marshall County Building.
