Building Blocks of Economic Development










A building block is commonly defined as “something essential that fits with others to form a whole and on which a larger entity is based.”  The building blocks described on this site via examples throughout Northwest Iowa, are considered essential to economic development in our region.

Economic development has evolved over the years to encompass a much broader array of strategies and actions that need to be addressed to develop the economy.  The Northwest Iowa Development Regional Partnership supports and actively participates in efforts to implement economic development strategies locally and regionally.
