From the AAEDC Website:
Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation (AAEDC) President and CEO Ed Rothstein and Executive Vice President Mary Burkholder attended the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) RECon convention from May 18 to 20 in Las Vegas and met with more than a dozen real estate developers, brokers, and retailers to rouse interest, educate and discuss options for doing business in Anne Arundel County. They say people were impressed with the county’s demographics which include a high median income, growing population and low unemployment rate.
“By using the Odenton Town Center retail market analysis as a benchmark, we were able to highlight a variety of potentials in West County,” said Rothstein. “We also promoted AAEDC’s programs that help businesses get started such as VOLT and revitalization loans, in-house consulting services, and tax incentives—all real motivators when deciding where to establish a business.”
AAEDC met with a national franchise that is looking for new locations and is interested in revitalizing its old locations. “We discussed the tax incentives and no interest loans that come with our revitalization program, and they were very interested in what we had to offer,” explains Burkholder.
