Economic Development Strategy
Economic Development Strategy. The US Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration, approved the 2014 Economic Development Strategy developed by the City of Wixom with assistance from a team of planning, branding, and economic development consultants. This team, led by Lathrup Village-based Clearzoning, Inc., presented the final plan to City Council in June 2014. The plan was designed to create a broad framework for attracting and retaining businesses and building upon the existing assets of the City.
Development Ready. In addition to the Economic Development Strategy, the project resulted in the creation of an electronic Development Manual that the City can use online to help applicants, staff, and officials understand the review process. This helpful guide contains flowcharts, illustrations, and hyperlinks to relevant documents, applications, and code requirements.
