Over the years, Goshen Economic Development has enjoyed strong support from local businesses and industries, city government, and most importantly, the wonderful citizens of Goshen County.
Thanks to continued voter approval of the ¼ penny sales tax (which funds our Progress Program), we’ve been able to invest $1.2 million in Goshen County businesses, non-profits, and municipalities!
What do those investments look like, you might ask?
Let’s take a look at the projects we consider our “greatest hits,” from the inception of the ¼ penny sales tax to now.
