Under the terms of the one-year, $30,000-contract, the Chamber will provide to Niles specific services that focus on economic development, under the leadership of Senior Vice President of Economic Development Sarah Boyarko. Those services include identifying new properties (land and buildings) to market, customizing a consultant familiarization tour to bring greater national and international exposure to the City and much more.

Sarah Boyarko, senior vice president of Economic Development at the Regional Chamber, said, “Together we’ve identified a list of several economic development services needed by the City, and we look forward to working with the administration in an effort to increase their development opportunities.”

Niles Mayor Thomas Scarnecchia added, “Now that we have shored up our finances for the short term, we need to develop long-term economic growth. The Regional Chamber has the expertise to help us be in the best position possible to capitalize on future economic opportunities.”
