Junction City-Geary County Economic Development Commission Launches New Website to Highlight Area Businesses and Opportunities

11 Dec 2019

Junction City, KS: Junction City-Geary County Economic Development Commission (EDC) recently launched a new website designed to educate businesses and professionals about Junction City-Geary County and the opportunities the area provides. 

“Economic Development is an unbelievably competitive business. In order to be noticed in this forest of possibilities, our EDC needs to have the right tools. A strong, data-driven website is one of those tools,” says Mark Powers, Junction City-Geary County EDC Chairman. 

To develop and design the site, Junction City-Geary County EDC partnered with Golden Shovel Agency, a national economic development communications firm recognized for its award-winning design and expertise in business and workforce attraction. 

“Golden Shovel is proud to partner with Junction City-Geary County EDC. This innovative approach to economic development is unmatched in the industry and will turn the head of site selectors,” says Ron Kresha, Golden Shovel Agency’s COO and CFO.

The site features a robust section for site selectors that includes a searchable database of available properties for sale and lease, and access to GIS planning tools so visitors can learn about the infrastructure, demographics and opportunities available in Junction City-Geary County. 

Junction City’s Mayor, Pat Landes, is excited about the launch of the new site and how it integrates with the EDC’s overall economic development efforts. 

“A strong presence on the Web is vital to supporting our local economic development efforts. If we don’t put out information and data out there to be viewed by interested parties, we are missing opportunities,” says Landes.

As time goes on Junction City-Geary County EDC looks forward to building on its new site by adding more and better data.
