APS Community Development Department has established a new program, Building Bridges to Businesses (B3). This exciting program focuses on business retention and expansion, working with communities to assist them in these efforts. The primary areas of focus for Building Bridges to Businesses are as follows:
- Position APS in the State and in the Communities we serve as a Value Added Partner in economic development.
- Increase and enhance the role of the local Economic Development organization with a coordinated and relevant Business Retention and Expansion Program, one that provides programmed reports that will assist economic developers in knowing what to focus on for existing business.
- By using an internet based program, that develops business and community information, the program produces an instant comparison in value, growth, risk, and satisfaction with all surveyed companies.
- Our goal is to develop opportunities for new jobs from the companies already in a community.
