Economic Development

Economic Development strategy (aka Burton Plan) March 2021-1.png

Belpre Area Chamber of Commerce works in partnership with our members, Southeast Ohio Port Authority, City of Belpre, and other economic development agencies to provide a climate in the Belpre Area and the Mod-Ohio Valley attractive as a place to start and grow a business.

Through the Chamber staff and our Member Development Committee of the Board of Directors, the Chamber works with individuals and organizations to become a hub of information about our area and business resources. Members also are encouraged to take advantage of education and training opportunities and mentorships for businesses looking to expand and grow. A variety of events such as a Business Expo and shopping events encouraging local trade and commerce are traditional.

Specifically, the Chamber board was a partner in developing the existing City of Belpre Economic Development Strategic Plan, which outlines plans for the City and its partners to begin work in ensuring a quality environment for business growth, residential growth, services and city development.

                                                                                                         

Members are always welcome to become a part of the Membership growth Committee. Interested persons and businesses are encouraged to call the Chamber office for more information.
