Capital Investment Success During an Unforgettable Year in 2020
Dec 15, 2020
Each year, the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance highlights the many ongoing and completed economic development projects in our Building to a Billion and Beyond report. Historically for more than 30 years, the Economic Alliance and our legacy organizations have reported on this primary function of our work. In response to a challenging 2020, and in light of economic hardships, we are focused more than ever on growing our tax base to create jobs in communities we represent.
The successful projects of 2020, despite a natural disaster, a pandemic, and social unrest, account for more than $539M in capital investment for our communities. This year’s projects created more than 100 jobs during an economic downturn. Working together, we aim to continue this positive momentum of good news, and even greater communities.
