Havelock looks at economic development plan

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

Sauls said Havelock needed to look beyond its golden economic egg that is Cherry Point.

"It’s hugely important to diversify your economic base," he said.

However, he said the city needed to use the talent that abounds in base personnel.

"The assets that you have stepping off this base are some that you should be utilizing in entrepreneurial projects," Sauls said.

He said the city needed to develop a policy on economic incentives that could be used to attract prospective businesses.

"The deal gets done at a local level," he said.

He also said the city needed to have a consistent message for prospective businesses.
