Chamber Releases Inaugural Local Agenda

The Columbia Chamber of Commerce released its first ever Local Agenda for Boone County and the City of Columbia. The priorities were carefully and strategically chosen based on the feedback from the businesses community, education entities, legislative members and community leaders. The Chamber’s priorities and positions focus on making Columbia a more business friendly community than it already is.

The Chamber’s 2017 local priorities are:

  1. Reform City Sign Code to bring it back into compliance with federal law and encourage changes that make the sign code more business friendly.
  2. Advocate for funding that will benefit the airport and new terminal construction.
  3. Develop a comprehensive plan for funding Public Safety.
  4. Help forge a City/County partnership to find solutions for the future of the Boone County Fairgrounds.
  5. Support policies that encourage local private development of workforce and affordable housing.
  6. Promote the need for clear, consistent and equitable regulations for city staff to implement.
  7. Encourage the City Council to abide by the voters will on ballot measures and vote to respect those outcomes.
