"To promote the economic growth and industrial development of Shelby, in an effort to further the common good, and general welfare of the Shelby community"

Together in 2017 with the City of Shelby, the Shelby Economic Development Plan was adopted.  This recommended plan from an outside firm suggested economic development recommendations that CIC is actively pursuing.

A partnership was established with CIC and the City of Shelby, the Village of Plymouth, The Shelby Foundation, and the Richland Area Chamber and Economic Development to fund an Economic Development Liasion position.  This successful relationship provides a strong economic development voice working on behalf of Shelby, Plymouth, and Northern Richland County.

Supporting the City and The Shelby Foundation to secure a placemaking plan to enhance the aesthetics and utility of the Main Street corridor, downtown greenspace, and Black Fork Commons enhancements.

As a new 501(c)3 organization, CIC is able to actively apply for grants and fundingwhich can financially support ventures and projects the group takes on. 

As the parent organization of Shelby Bicycle Days, CIC supports all efforts for Shelby's summer community festival.  Bicycle Days now generates a modest surplus to support economic development efforts to propel the future of Shelby.


Active sub-committees of CIC work continuosly to achieve the goals of the Shelby Economic Development Plan.  The following four sub-committees are composed of CIC members and community leaders to move the plan forward: 


Leading the overall strategy and sustainability.


Promoting available commercial real estate and overall Shelby advantages.


Engaging in making Shelby the center for entrepreneurism through collaboration of local public schools and higher education.


Collaborating with small business to provide resources and be a solution for roadblocks throttling success and growth.
