The City of Bay Minette through its Industrial Development Board has formed a dynamic partnership with the State of Alabama, Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance and the Baldwin County Commission to promote the progress of industry and promote jobs that will improve our quality of life. The connection emphasizes the opportunities through industry and business for a positive change for our future – we drive events and not react to economic circumstance! Strategic design and collaboration with our North Baldwin Chamber of Commerce, has encouraged a renaissance in our city – a new vision of opportunity in a recession – over the past two years, 30 businesses have opened! Unique services and products that recognize “doing things different” and “doing different things” are a prerequisite of innovation that sets a course to achieve success!
We realize that slashing budgets as a cutback measure is the equivalent of person who decides to eat less – the person may lose weight, but he or she doesn’t necessarily improve his or her health. Leaders today must be effective catalysts and translate the forces for change into better local government. While recognizing the opportunities and obstacles and planning for effectiveness and efficiency; we have discovered that we are only limited by our imagination in solving today’s unprecedented challenges!
We are steering a course for industry and business that provides jobs that are not finite, but career professions that involve creativity, inventiveness, resourcefulness, environmental responsiveness, and innovative technology. The outcome is constructive growth for our citizens plus products and services that are highly marketable. We see and articulate future enterprise through relationships that see harmony between industry, education, economic development and the people – not just of our city but for all the citizens of the Gulf Coast Region of the United States. Our residents mature through diversity of new industry and business – we are growing together in our optimistic expectations as we create a strong network that builds prosperity for our future!
