Economic Assessment and Commercial Development Strategy Scio Township DDA

In planning for future growth in the community, the Township of Scio, through its Downtown Development Authority and the Economic Study Task Force, retained Anderson Economic Group to complete an economic development strategic.

We started with a rigorous economic analysis, pinpointing the industries and occupations with the most growth opportunity in coming years. We also analyzed the employment base from which workers would come, identified a measurable gap in office space, and uncovered current and projected demographic trends of the area. Our findings led us to recommend a plan to locate businesses along the Jackson road corridor, with an emphasis on the Baker and Zeeb Road interchanges for increased visibility and accessibility.

Our recommendations, which were documented along with the details of our analysis in a final report and presentation, included developing a business campus with Class A office space and limited retail; creating a town center atmosphere at the intersection of Zeeb and Jackson Roads; and to physically integrate future development along Jackson Road with connecting roads, shared parking, and common access points.

The Cost of Bailout Versus Bankruptcy Among the Big 3

Our experts have closely followed the ups and downs of the automotive industry, providing clients with detailed information to help them understand and plan for the resulting changes. Our industry analysis is designed to provide timely, concise, and relevant information that can help any organization—from professional investors, to retailers, to governments—understand the rapid change in the industry, and how restructuring in the industry may impact their own sales, revenues, customer base, and more.  

In October, November, and December of 2008, our experts provided clients with a series of reports updating them on the economic relaities facing the automotive industry. AEG then teamed up with BBK, Ltd. in order to produce the first comprehensive analysis of the taxpayer costs of the Federal bridge financing requested by the auto manufacturers, compared with the likely costs of a bankruptcy declared by one or more of the same manufacturers.
