3 Priorities. One Mission
The Transformational Investor Program is a public-private partnership launched in June 2020 to lead economic development efforts in Barren County. Our goals are ambitious, and our efforts are a catalyst for economic growth in our community. Guided by our 2020/2021 Action Plan, our focus is on:
- Attracting new businesses and support existing businesses, resulting in new jobs and a more robust local economy
- Working to develop and align the pipeline of workers needed to meet the needs of area employers
- Build and promote infrastructure, sites and buildings that meet the needs for business expansions and locations
Our investors share a commitment to creating and promoting a vibrant community. Whether you live here, work here, or do both, you have a vested interest in seeing Barren County grow.
Attracting new businesses and helping existing businesses expand will lead to more jobs in our community, a broadened tax base and services that enhance the quality of life of all our residents. Your investment is an investment in the business health of our area.
