LISC Toledo’s economic development initiatives boost the health of neighborhoods by investing in the physical and social assets of a community's business districts.
To make this happen, we support programs and invest in projects that cultivate entrepreneurship, attract new businesses, promote creative placemaking, diversify the local retail mix, and stimulate employment.
It's the kind of development that grows local job opportunities and incomes, and brings goods and services to places where they're needed. These changes, in turn, ripple outward, beyond individual neighborhoods, improving the landscape for industry and employment, bolstering cities’ tax revenues and stimulating regional economies.
LISC MetroEdge tailors smart economic development strategies for specific, local places. Our approach identifies assets, inspires potential investors to take a different view of disinvested markets and helps communities take the reins of their economic futures.
We offer guidance and support for organizations that want to revitalize business districts using reliable metrics. We help neighborhoods, public officials and investors understand emerging markets, prepare for development and access the marketplace.
