LEDC is engaged in planning, developing, and promoting economic development for Spencer County. As a champion for the Business, Retention and Expansion (BR&E) program, LEDC partners with many area employers to foster growth in Spencer County and assists with site selection and relocation. Finding the right incentives to establish new businesses and to expand or relocate existing businesses is vital for our economic growth.
With Spencer County’s many assets of major highway access, infrastructure and being ideally situated on the Ohio River, our outlook is strong for continued growth. Our local employer and school programs position us to attract and retain increasingly diverse industries to our area. Our affordable cost of living and, yet, rural lifestyle, along with a strong public school system, make Spencer County attractive to families. Our commitment to supporting our existing industry partners, as well as focus on the attraction of new investment, makes our Indiana business- friendly climate even friendlier.
