Project Scope

Public Engagement

Communicate purpose, gather support, leverage expertise, seek understanding, promote inclusivity, and validate findings through committees, surveys, and information-sharing with the community and key stakeholders.

Economic Analysis

Understand the challenges and opportunities associated with being a nuclear host community by examining Dresden’s impact on direct and indirect employment, our skilled labor force, GDP, real estate markets, and tax revenues.

Decommissioning Process

Connect with other nuclear host communities and technical experts to understand the far-reaching consequences if a plant decommissions and advocate for greater community involvement in potential closure scenarios.

Economic Diversification Roadmap

Leverage findings and market projections to develop a roadmap of opportunities and action items to diversify our economy and increase our area’s resilience by attracting impactful new business development to Grundy County.
