Albemarle County Considering New Guidelines for Economic Development Office
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Albemarle County's Economic Development Office (EDO) wants to create a specific review process when it comes to deciding which businesses should or should not receive incentives.
Right now, the office does everything on a case-by-case basis.
EDO Director Roger Johnson met with the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors Wednesday, May 15, to discuss how the office decide to gives grants or aid and how they've been reviewing incentive activities.
"This is really setting up a structure by which we would say, ‘yes this is a good fit for us and the community,’ and it meets all the criteria that we've sort of set up through this process that's underway right now,” said Emily Kilroy, communications with Albemarle County.
Wednesday’s meeting was a way to get some feedback from the supervisors.
The Albemarle Count Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on a draft proposal that spells out guidelines for the future on June 18.
