Visit Noble County has relocated from Rome City to the Noble County Economic Development Corp. offices in Albion. The organization says the move was planned last year to enhance collaboration within the county.
Emily Schneider, executive director of Visit Noble County, said “I am glad to complete this co-location as both organizations strive to promote and develop assets to enhance economic growth.”
The office is located near the corner of State Roads 8 and 9, and the Courthouse square.
“Great work is going to happen as a result of our offices coming together,” agreed Gary Gatman, executive director of the EDC. “Collaboration is key to Noble County’s ability to grow. Noble County stands to gain from the ability to develop messaging that attracts and retains talent, as well as leisure travelers, to the region.”
The move aligns with other regional and state programs, including the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, to attract economic development projects. The state of Indiana is also in the process of creating economic development and tourism quasi-governmental agency called the Indiana Destination Development Corporation. Its work is expected to begin in July 2020.
