I can't say enough about how Brian and the EDC has helped the Village of Fall Creek. Not only has Brian worked closely and tirelessly with current and prospective businesses, he took it upon himself to teach us how to plan for our future. He walked us through the process of analyzing our strengths and weaknesses, defining our opportunities and threats. He facilitated numerous meetings, including a Community Listening Session to make sure ALL residents had the opportunity to give their input when developing the future goals and vision for the Village. Our heartfelt thanks go out to Brian and all the staff at the EDC.

A major and very helpful function of the EDC is nurturing, encouraging and and helping entrepreneurs from idea stage development and funding. We need to grow our economic base organically from the talent and ideas of the budding entrepreneur.

When we were looking to build a new warehouse, the EDC was instrumental in assisting us by helping to put together the developers agreement between Bush Brothers and the City of Augusta. The new warehouse is now in operation and has become an integral part of Bush Brothers' operation.
