Town of LaSalle - Economic Development Plan and Value Propositions

Mellor Murray Consulting was retained to create LaSalle’s first economic development plan focused on attracting economic activity to support the growing population and diversify its economic base. The strategic plan included a detailed review of the planning policies and framework and the potential for community development initiatives to support local business and investment. The project also included identifying key sectors with significant growth potential and a summary of best practices in economic development and local business support and engagement initiatives.

The strategy was complimented with the development of value propositions for three target sectors including an analysis of the existing business base, business costs, related workforce and market potential to ensure the town was well positioned to attract and respond to investment opportunities.
