The Economic Development Working Group
To achieve its economic development related goals, the Road Ahead has established an Economic Development Working Group.
The current goals of the Economic Development Working Group include:
Collaboratively share best practices/examples of successful community revitalization and to build effective strategies for leveraging tourism for economic development purposes.
Identify and promote case studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of leveraging Route 66 tourism for economic development purposes, in order to draw in support and increase the involvement of Route 66 stakeholders.
Share information with Route 66 stakeholders about the meaning and benefits of preservation and the tools, techniques, and incentives for appropriate preservation outcomes.
Progress being made by the Economic Development Working Group on these goals is reported in the Annual and Quarterly Reports found in the Resources Section of this website.
