Meet your Economic Development Partners

Brown County is pro-business and has a strong commitment to promoting growth and prosperity in our communities. Economic development is not siloed to one individual, committee, or organization, but rather a collaborative effort between public entities, private organizations, volunteers, foundations and other stakeholders.

Action Brown County works tirelessly with others to attract, retain, and expand businesses in Brown County while simultaneously developing community projects and events.
