Fueling Our Future
Together, the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation (EDC), along with public and private sector leaders, announced the launch of the Fueling Our Future initiative recently.
Initially envisioned in 2017, Fueling Our Future is a long-term initiative, divided into four-year programs of work, led by dozens of private and public investors, including Sanford, Gate City Bank, Microsoft, the cities of Fargo and West Fargo, and others. Fueling Our Future has been endorsed by both The Chamber and EDC boards.
Fueling Our Future brings resources together to focus on major initiatives and programs to create lasting regional impact. The work will fall under three pillars:
People (workforce development)
Projects within “People” will include strengthening the workforce pipeline by support of education/industry alignment, as well as programs targeted to aid the region in competing in an ever-changing global economy prepared for the future.
Prosperity (economic development)
Projects within “Prosperity” will include support of business development efforts through the attraction of new businesses within targeted industry sectors and support of existing industry and entrepreneurs.
Place (community assets/quality of life)
Projects within “Place” will focus on place-based amenities that enhance community assets, business-friendly infrastructure and positively impact quality of life.
