Dear NPU Chair,
The City of Atlanta’s economic development agency, Invest Atlanta, is creating an inclusive economic development strategy that focuses on economic mobility. The strategy will be designed to help us more intentionally embed equity and inclusion in all our work; as well as make well-informed decisions about programs, incentives, and policies to ensure deployment of resources reaches communities/neighborhoods and people that have historically lacked access to economic opportunities.
Community engagement is an essential part of this process. In addition to receiving community comments on the website here, Invest Atlanta is hosting two town halls at the end of February to hear from residents about what their needs are and receive feedback on our work thus far.
My request — would you consider sharing the attached invite with your NPU email list? We want to ensure we are hearing from everyone impacted.
If you have any questions or thoughts, please feel free to reach out.
We thank you in advance for your help in getting the word out!
Dr. Eloisa Klementich, CEcD
