Strategic Sites Inventory Our Clear Line of Site strategic planning process starts with Strategic Sites Inventory (SSI), an industry-leading real estate asset development program for economic development. The SSI Program informs the community strategic plan by identifying high-value properties.
Target Industry Determination We then determine industry targets matched to real estate assets, workforce capacity, infrastructure, and community culture to ensure achievable project attraction and job growth.
Community/Site Branding & Marketing Once strategic real estate assets are identified and viable industry targets determined, we collaborate with communities to develop a substance-driven branding and marketing campaign.
