Brigham City Seeks Input on Economic Strategies

The Brigham City Community and Economic Development Department – with support from Box Elder County – has been conducting a study in order to develop strategies that will help to grow four distinct business clusters in the community that are comprised of the aerospace and composites, structural steel, shooting sports and agricultural areas of concentration.

Box Elder County’s economic development director, Mitch Zundel, said that while this is primarily a Brigham City driven project, the county is following along closely since the scope of the cluster analysis will impact the county as a whole.

Through grants from the U.S. Department of Commerce and other federal, state and local agencies and businesses, Brigham City Corporation has hired former Ogden City Mayor Matthew Godfrey’s consulting firm to draft this industry cluster analysis. Box Elder News Journal
