Smooth Rock Falls is working on a strategic plan to encourage economic development in the community.
FedNor is helping to fund the plan with a $58,843 investment.
The plan will help Smooth Rock Falls “identify and prioritize viable economic opportunities to diversify, create jobs and stimulate investment in the community,” according to a news release.
The community’s last strategic plan was completed in 1999 before the closure of Tembec pulp mill.
“We are confident that the strategic and business opportunity plans will assist us to focus on our best bets going forward, in addition to helping us increase revenues to improve our economic sustainability,” said Michel Arsenault, mayor of the Town of Smooth Rock Falls, in the statement.
