Administrator Brad Chown had a long list of economic development activities happening in Black River Falls as his time came up during the Economic Development meeting held last Monday.

This has become common for Chown and the city of Black River Falls as the city has had a lot of economic development news to share this year including the new Kwik Trip and Arby’s that have come to town.

“We really are a fantastic location, we always have been. I think that the economy has come to the point where we are recovering from 2008 and people are starting to expand and take a little bit more risk,” said Chown.

With a lot of growth happening near Interstate 94, Chown is hoping creating a historic district downtown will be a new tool that can continue to spur economic development in the area.
