While the world is undeniably changed by what we have all experienced in 2020, economic development in Hancock County remains a bright spot in the community. E-commerce is thriving and we have seen new projects show that the HEDC and Hancock County are perfectly positioned for growth. We have been able to capitalize on this boom with our central location in Indiana and the U.S. as well as our proximity to four major interstates.
A significant accomplishment of the Council in 2020 was finalizing and adopting our new strategic plan that lays out our roadmap through 2024. While our major focus remains on business attraction, we now will place added emphasis on business retention and expansion.
