Economic development is an important function of government and varies in thrust from the revitalization of distressed areas to managing growth in strong areas, sometimes within the same jurisdiction.
Econsult Solutions, Inc. brings a breadth of knowledge gained from many years of executive level experience. Our personnel have directed economic development agencies of major cities, prepared economic development plans and strategies for a variety of jurisdictions, and conducted analyses for economic development agencies.
Econsult Solutions, Inc. can assist both government and private sector clients in strategic thinking and the efficient and successful implementation of programs and projects. We can work with groups to examine an area’s economic strengths and weaknesses, as well as to assess the feasibility of economic development programs and project proposals. Our staff includes nationally recognized experts in urban economics, economic development, real estate economics and public finance.
We have worked across the spectrum of jurisdictions, from small townships to large cities and counties. Econsult Solutions, Inc. conducts pro-forma, cost-benefit, economic impact, tax base, fiscal impact, retail, and other analyses using objective criteria. Our focus on economic analysis makes Econsult Solutions, Inc. a natural complement to urban planners, regional business coalitions, and engineering firms.
"In past years, Cooper's Ferry Partnership hired Econsult Solutions to provided economic impacts studies for large scale transformative projects that allowed us to secure funding from county, state and regional funds. ESI's studies have also been essential in applying for NMTC applications and establishing key relationships with new funding partners like Goldman Sachs."
