The Town of Chapin is accepting Requests for Proposals from qualified service providers to develop a comprehensive economic development strategy for the Town that will be the product of a local planning process and will be designed to guide the Town toward future economic growth.
Components of the plan would include the following:
The plan will need to include participation and feedback by key stakeholders, such as the Greater Chapin Chamber of Commerce, Lexington-Richland School District 5, post-secondary education partners, Lexington County economic development, Chapin Community Endowment, local citizens and others with a vested interest in improving Chapin’s attractiveness to potential businesses and residents.
Ultimately, this plan should help create jobs and serve as a mechanism for coordinating the efforts of individuals, organizations, private industry, and local government concerned with the Town of Chapin’s economic development.
