Charles County, a dynamic region in the Washington DC metro area and a growing business hub in Maryland, announced today the launch of a redesigned economic development website, MeetCharlesCounty.com. Designed for corporate executives, site selection consultants, and local businesses, the new website will provide decision makers with Information about the county’s economic climate, incentives, and resources for doing business in the county.
“Charles County is committed to growing our economy through business attraction and retention, and we developed the new MeetCharlesCounty.com website to be a key resource for companies to learn more about the advantages of doing business in the County,” said Commissioner President Peter Murphy. “Charles County is well-positioned for investment and growth, with our strategic location in the region, strong pool of talent, affordable real estate options, and great quality of life.”
Featuring a sleek design with easy navigation, the new website features a geographic information system planning tool to search for available real estate options, easily accessible economic data (demographic, workforce, education statistics), a blog, company testimonials, and a business support section for businesses already operating in Charles County. The website will be managed by the Charles County Department of Economic Development (EDD). The department also serves as the first point of contact for local businesses and for companies looking to locate or relocate to Charles County.
“We recently unveiled a two-year marketing plan, and the new website is another step we’re taking to better market our assets to the business community,” said Marcia Keeth, acting director for the Charles County EDD. The new logo and tagline, Charles County: Close to the Capital, Far from Ordinary, touts the County’s strategic location while introducing Charles County as a region offering unique benefits to businesses. “Charles County already has what it takes for businesses to grow and thrive. Our new website will now have companies ‘think Charles County’ when making their business decisions.”
