Today's executive roundtable discussion on making place in the midstate hit on many topics that are critical to business growth and the local economy.
Our participants were asked about their definition of sustainable development and what it means to regional projects they undertake. They also got an opportunity to weigh in on the importance of public-private partnerships at the state and local levels, for large and small projects, as well as site selection, adaptive reuse and reinvestment in key corridors, mixed-use projects and zoning trends, recruiting a local workforce and attractive companies from emerging industries.
In addition, the group was asked about projects they are most proud of in their careers and our biggest regional asset. More importantly, what do they think will be Central Pennsylvania’s greatest competitive advantage 50 years from now?
