In the past two decades, development organizations in some of America’s most successful communities have adopted a growth stimulation strategy that has transformed their local economies. Some of the dynamic and well-known cities utilizing this concept include Salt Lake City, Spokane, Atlanta, Phoenix, Raleigh/Durham, Tucson, Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, and many others. Recent statistics compiled by the Economic Strategy Center of Atlanta, Georgia, indicate that cities that have utilized this strategy to stimulate growth and tackle obstacles are growing at a rate of 11.6% vs. the national average of 4.4%.
