Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow is a community-wide initiative of the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce to stimulate economic and community development on the Eastern Shore. This bold five-year program continues the progress established through the Blueprint for Tomorrow initiative and re-energizes cooperation between our private corporate community and our elected officials for the good of our entire community.
Retail businesses are contacted regularly by organizations seeking their philanthropic support for a variety of worthwhile causes. Considering the competitive nature of their marketplace and ever-shrinking profit margins, many retailers have had to tighten their budgets for special economic and community development projects. However, Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow is not a cause or a charity. Rather, this initiative is a sound business investment in the Eastern Shore and Baldwin Countys future economic growth and well-being.
The mission of Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow is simple to create sound economic growth by defining and addressing the Eastern Shores needs and opportunities. Here are just a few benefits that will accrue to your business and our community through your support of this important initiative:
When a well-conceived program of community development is implemented, everyone benefits. Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow will bring many new families to Baldwin County. As a result, retail sales of goods and services will dramatically increase over the next five years.
Targeted new business and industry recruited to our area through Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow, will significantly expand Baldwin Countys tax revenues. This expanded tax base should maintain local ad valorem and business taxes at or near their current levels which will result in significant tax savings for our existing businesses over the next five years.
As a result of Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow, the Chamber will help monitor long-range planning for the communitys infrastructure to ensure that there will always be adequate land, roads, water, sewer and utilities to sustain responsible commercial development.
Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow will bring your company into full partnership with Baldwin Countys elected officials. As community development partners, our business and industry leaders will be able to exert considerable influence on the public sector to provide the necessary services which will enable your company to grow and flourish.
The success of Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow is dependent on the strong leadership and pace-setting financial commitments of Eastern Shore and Baldwin Countys business leaders. The men and women who are leading Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow are strongly committed to the future of our community. Now we urge you to partner with us and join Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow.
