The City of Greensboro is at a crossroads and needs your input.
It has launched a competition for proposals and plans spurring economic growth in Greensboro. The economic catalyst challenge is part of the US Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration's
Strong Cities Strong Communities (SC2) grant that the City received in 2012.
You and your proposal and plan for Greensboro will be the mortar that cements the ‘building blocks’ of the City’s future. To submit a proposal for this challenge, visit this website and register to participate. The website also offers guidance about the submission process, deadlines for submissions, rules of the competition, and prize money breakdowns.
(Refer to this article about Greensboro's economic projects/plans that serve as a foundation for Greensboro's future.)
In May 2015, a winner will be selected. An evaluation panel, consisting of business leaders throughout Greensboro and a City Council liaison, has been selected by City officials to oversee the competition, rate proposals and choose the winners of both phases.
