Elkhart growth plan calls for less reliance on RV industry

ELKHART, Ind. — There is no better time than now, while Elkhart’s economy is strong, to increase the city’s economic resilience and develop a clear plan for growth, Mayor Tim Neese says.

According to the Elkhart Truth, a plan from the Mayor’s Office says the city will examine existing base industries and workforce requirements to identify two or three industries that the city “would specifically target for future growth.”

Those industries should have different market-demand factors than the RV industry, according to a release about the plan, though they should also offer positions that can be filled by the existing workforce.

According to the release, industries that would fit this description include supply-chain management, data analytics, advanced manufacturing, engineered solutions and health care. It is the mayor’s goal that the right industries will have been identified by spring.
