Top 10 for 2-18-2013

Here's the GFDA Top 10 for last week, celebrating great things happening to move Great Falls Forward!

1) Completed the Ground Water Investigation report for the Great Falls AgriTech Park. Worked on lot sale agreements for our first two tenants!

2) Participated in an excellent tax increment financing workshop the City held involving the ADF Group, AgriTech Park tenants and others.
3) Worked on state incentive applications for a large back office operations center prospect.
4) GFDA's Loan Committee approved an $850,000 bridge loan from our new Enterprise Fund to help finance completion of a nonprofit facility in Great Falls.
5) Worked with a local developer on a new potential downtown project.
6) Space is available for another local business leader to participate in Thought Patterns on February 26-27 in Great Falls. Part of our Growth Initiative, Though Patterns focuses on business leadership, confident decision-making, exceeding performance expectations, and creating cultures of opportunity and optimum performance. The cost for both days including lunch is $370. Contact Rebecca Engum, or 771-9032 today to claim the spot.
7) We testified in Helena in support of the Great Falls Job Service that has been a great partner in supporting our business expansion and attraction efforts. We testified in support of the sale of Blue Cross Blue Shield to Health Care Service Corporation to insure competitive health insurance for Montana employers. And, we testified in support of the state's Agriculture Development Centers because we want to become one to expand agri-processing in the Great Falls region!
8) We published the first of our rebranded marketing materials based on the new Great Falls brand strategy.
9) THANK YOU to General Distributing for a $30,000 donation to Great Falls College MSU to support dual American-Canadian certification of the College's welding program!
10) If you're wondering whether there will be enough work for fabricators and assemblers in our region, $47 billion in industrial investment is planned in Alberta in 2013 and an additional $40 billion in British Columbia.


Hope you enjoyed a great Presidents Day Weekend!
