The Alliance, with AEDC and Entergy Arkansas, Re-Certified a 45-acre industrial site in order to be one of few communities across the state to boast a Select Site piece of industrial property.
In 2023 the Alliance, with AEDC and Entergy Arkansas, Re-Certified a 45-acre industrial site in order to be one of few communities across the state to boast a Select Site piece of industrial property. We also formed a Site Selection committee to aggressively purpose new industrial property that we can have packaged and ready to go (available product) in order to compete for projects on a large scale.
At the request of local industry and area employers, the Alliance conducted a wage and benefit surveyed to reflect the most recent information in our labor market. We also surveyed local industries to assess strengths, challenges, and current state of industrial/manufacturing climate in Russellville for our largest employers.
The Alliance worked with multiple local and state agencies to bring opportunity and increased prosperity to our region. In a time with rising interest rates, inflation, supply chain disruptions, and labor shortages, Russellville and the surrounding area continues to work hard, defy the odds, and succeed in growing the local economy. We worked to tell a better story to recruit business and industry as well, with 4 new commercials and multiple aggressive marketing strategies to ensure Russellville and our regional community continue to compete on a national scale.
