Greater FD Growth Alliance: Growing the area
12 Feb 2017
The Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance exists to pursue economic development and quality of life efforts to improve the entire region.
Dennis Plautz, the alliance’s chief executive officer, said it was created in 2011 to ”marry up” the twin causes of economic development and quality of life.
During 2016, it has pursued that mission by carefully targeting its efforts to recruit employers to the area.
And in an effort to make the Fort Dodge community more attractive as a place to live and work, the alliance has also tackled issues related to retail sales, housing, and education.
In all of those diverse efforts, the alliance has worked closely with local and state governments and businesses.
