The City of Madison recently announced the rebranding of its economic development department committed to building community partnerships to promote Madison and its businesses.
“The past year brought many challenges to small businesses and provided insight to community leaders on the types of daily challenges they face,” said Madison the City Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler. “It was this time of modified operation that provided us a unique opportunity to reimagine how to best grow and excel together as a city.
“We are fortunate to have an engaged community, steadfast in supporting local businesses in our city. To enhance that relationship and further promote economic development in the City of Madison, city leaders are proud to announce the establishment of Madison The City Community Partners, a new economic development department to promote, sustain, and grow our business base. We appreciate Madison The City Chamber’s hard work over the years and are looking forward to working with local businesses to bring economic development in the city of Madison to a new level.”
Community Partners will work alongside the local business and property owners, and residents to promote economic growth, develop special events and seasonal attractions, and strengthen community pride through community-focused efforts that enhance the city of Madison.
“We cherish our small-town atmosphere and have been able to enhance our quality of life through careful planning during years of exponential growth. Through the creation of Community Partners, we will continue this trend of mindfully growing and promoting our beautiful city with a healthy business environment,” said Butler.
