Havelock looks at economic development plan

Published: Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 02:26 PM.

The Havelock Board of Commissioners directed the city manager and city planner to work with the planning board to develop an outline for an economic development plan during its meeting Monday night.

Commissioners, meeting jointly with members of the Havelock Planning Board, heard an economic development presentation by Roger Sauls, of Davenport Lawrence, in which Sauls first detailed national economic trends and how North Carolina ranked among other states in a variety of economic categories.

"This is a very high level, 30,000 feet level, view of economic development," Sauls said as he whisked through bar charts.

Sauls pointed out that Craven County is currently developing an economic development strategy.

"Everything that Craven County does may not fit in Havelock," Sauls said.

Sauls said the plan would be a long-term commitment.

"This is not a sprint. It’s a marathon," he said.
