Strengthening Stark shares online resources for businesses and job seekers.
MASSILLON Janelle Lee, an economic development consultant, gave an update on Strengthening Stark, a plan that aims to improve the county’s future, during a business luncheon this week.
Strengthening Stark formed out of a 2017 report that determined Stark County needed to become more competitive regionally to bring wealth into the area and reverse the trend toward older and fewer residents.
Lee focused on two major accomplishments and resources for the community: a jobs platform and a “Business 911” platform during a powerpoint presentation Monday at the Massillon WestStark Chamber of Commerce Business Connection LIVE luncheon.
