This “Private Economic Development” webpage was designed to assist finding information about places to live and where to work in Ashville. These are generally accomplished through the private sector. We believe it is important for a vibrant community to encourage new housing and business opportunities. Specifically, the Village works toward an objective of “Continued expansion of economic development strategies to attract, maintain or expand businesses opportunities within the community, to include creating innovative solutions to fill commercial vacancies and innovative solutions for vacant lot development.” The intent of this is to identify specific actions, priorities, and programs to enable the Village to achieve its economic development goals by building upon the Village’s economic assets and identifying new opportunities. These activities will increase employment, facilitate the robust growth and expansion of businesses, improve the quality of life of all residents, enlarge the tax base, further promote and develop the downtown, and position the Village as an attractive place to live and work.
Therefore, new housing development and enhancement of existing housing becomes a goal to promote our “Vision” of Ashville. We want to stimulate economic development, which facilitates the expansion and creation of locally owned businesses, including agriculture and by attracting environmentally safe industries. We want economic development, which creates jobs, diversifies the economic base, enhances and restores resources for generations.
