Slideshow and podcast of TJPED's Targeted Industry Study presentation
Charlottesville city councilors and Albemarle County supervisors were briefed on Wednesday April 11 on the results of a targeted industry study commissioned by the Thomas Jefferson Partnership for Economic Development.
Sharon Younger, the consultant who conducted the $150,000 study, said both communities should focus on industries that provide high-paying wages while creating other support jobs. Younger estimated that every new job created in the businesses and financial services sector would create an additional 9.3 support jobs.
Charlottesville Tomorrow has produced both a podcast and a slideshow (below, with audio) of this presentation.
