Kate Greene, the executive director of Main Street Fairmont, provided the update during Tuesday’s URA meeting.
The economic profile is something the URA has partnered with Main Street Fairmont to create. It will be a summary of the economic standing in this area.
“It’s a really basic snapshot of the economic indicators in our region,” Greene said. “Initially it’s a baseline to look at Fairmont within this larger region. We’re part of Region 6 in the state of West Virginia. Now the next phase will be to narrow it down to the tri-county picture.”
When the profile is complete, it will be used to market the region and hopefully bring in more business.
