Welcome to the City of Shelby Economic Development Action Plan Survey

This survey provides Shelby residents and business owners and managers an opportunity to share their ideas about Shelby's economic future. Local leaders need your inputs!

The City of Shelby is a place steeped in history with families, business and industry that reach back generations.  That history provides a strong basis for how the community will succeed and grow its economy moving forward.  The City of Shelby and its Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) want to capitalize on that rich history and determine its path forward for retaining existing business and industry, helping them grow, and attracting new business opportunities to the City.  They hired the Montrose Group to develop an economic development strategic plan to drive the path forward.

The people that live and work in the City of Shelby are asked to provide thoughts and ideas about where the City of Shelby is today, what has worked in the past, and the path the City of Shelby needs to go down to ensure wealth is created for the community, businesses and individuals for the next decade.

The survey will be open until 5 PM on March 3, 2017.
