What is the purpose of West Central 2025?
To create an action-oriented network of individuals and groups who are familiar with each other’s regional assets, seeking collaborative partnerships and ready to quickly seize opportunities that will represent West Central Indiana at the local, state and national levels. Specific results could include:
- More realistic long-term planning with better understanding of available resources
- Increased political and economic development influence
- Funding opportunities for collaborative projects
- An action plan to meet our common goals as a unified group
How is this different from other regional collaborations?
Born from the ever-growing need to create a region that is inviting and open to business growth and development, West Central 2025 serves to position us for economic success. Members of this group will need to be responsive and ready to quickly respond to common needs of regional partners.
