CEO unveils 'bold but achievable' goals for local economy

The Council for Economic Outreach’s goals for job creation and economic development in 2010 now seem modest compared to the new goals unveiled Wednesday, which is no surprise considering the first goals were met halfway through the business organization’s five-year plan.


CEO — the economic development arm of the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce — held a kickoff to its new five-year plan called Transforming Greater Gainesville — a Game-Changing Plan at the Gainesville Country Club on Wednesday afternoon.

The new goals also include $1 billion in regional investments and major infrastructure development, through support of development projects like the Power District and Progress Park, a conference center, Plum Creek’s Envision Alachua plan, the Cade Museum, a new lab and office space.
