Town of Zebulon RFQ – Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The Town of Zebulon is in search of a consultant to guide us through the development of an Economic Development strategy unique to Zebulon. In addition to the traditional evaluation of strengths, weaknesses, assets and obstacles, etc., for plan development, we would like public engagement with many stakeholder groups within the community to also incorporate the needs of residents and businesses moving forward.  This is a bit unconventional however, Zebulon is the second fastest growing town in the state, and we are seeing huge population increases that pose challenges to existing residents and businesses.  We are seeking a partner to create a plan for economic development success along with some strategies to provide for the needs of the residents that may be adversely impacted by the rapid growth of the Town.
