Scott County Development Committee
Chamber of Commerce/Economic Development/Travel & TourismCivic Clubs & Non Profit Organizations
The VISION of SCDC is to provide and promote an economically viable dynamic, and livable Scott County and the MISSION is to preserve, protect and enhance both economic and lifestyle opportunities for the county’s residents and businesses.
Our Approach ..... Economic development today, doesn’t resemble the approach to community growth of the past. SCDC strives to support the financial well-being of existing local business while forging a path for growth that attracts more businesses and families to choose Scott County as their “home”. Recruitment is a seldom-used tool in the chest.
Certainly, it is wise to encourage new business sectors and embrace competition, but SCDC believes those decisions lie within the private sector and free enterprise system. That process works.
Another role of economic development, particularly in small communities, is to keep a watchful eye on the “strength” of the major industries that define Scott County – agriculture, livestock, healthcare and recently oil & gas. SCDC often gathers community leaders and interested citizens to discuss and seek solvency to challenges that impact the vibrant future of Scott City.
Growth creates a synergy that becomes a natural catalyst for success. Scott City is proactive, yet thoughtful, when assessing opportunities for growth, in a moderate, controlled manner.
