Our Industrial Board works tirelessly to bring industry to McKenzie. To attract new industries and encourage existing plants to expand, the McKenzie Industrial Development Board works with interested companies to obtain state offered financial assistance. Low interest loans and grants for structural constructions are two examples of this funding. Other incentives available to industry include tax relief on property and equipment and free employee training.

This economic development action plan is intended to give direction and framework to the proactive approach to economic development established by the Industrial Development Board or MEDC (McKenzie Economic Development Corporation). This plan is meant to be specific yet allow room for opportunities that may present themselves. It should not be viewed as concrete but as a framework from which to plan and operate a proactive marketing effort that is fairly comprehensive in approach and scope. The plan seeks to develop on the successes of the community’s history while embarking on several new initiatives focused around the region and its partnerships. The plan will focus on outbound marketing efforts as well as continuing to build relationships with the prospects as well as site consultants. This plan includes the programs for Business Attraction and Business Retention & Expansion (BRE).
