The rollout of the Godfrey branding initiative is about a month away.  On March 10th at Lewis & Clark Community College, the village will unveil the program to the public.  The branding project has been a work in progress for about a year and a half since the village hired North Star Destination Strategies to develop a package.

The ultimate goal is to attract more businesses, residents and visitors to the area.  Tom Long, who chairs the Community Planning, Economic Development and Infrastructure Committee, tells The Big Z this is part of an overall strategy to continue to grow the village.

The village is in the process of hiring an Economic Development and Market Brand Director, which is a new position that is being created to help move the village forward as the branding initiative and other economic tools combine to draw new development to the village.
