During the current economic cycle, the Ocala/Marion County Economic Development Corporation has developed this blog as a way to engage our community in a productive conversation on the status of our local economy. We encourage business owners, executives and managers, as well as concerned citizens to participate. Use this blog to learn more about how your elected officials are partnering with EDC Leadership and the business community to take aggressive steps to stimulate economic growth in Ocala/Marion County.
The Ocala EDC is committed to ensuring our community is Great for Business AND Great for Life. This goal can be achieved by maintaining a balance in the “Elements of Economic Development.” These four elements are represented by the green and gold ovals of our logo:
Recruiting new businesses to our area that complement our existing economic structure.
New and existing businesses cannot achieve success without a skilled workforce. Through our partnerships, we are strengthening the labor pool.
Helping our existing businesses grow and succeed ensures a healthy economic future.
Growth has to be cultivated and managed through what is best for our environment and quality of life.
