On the local level, the Fort Dodge Area Chamber of Commerce has several interests. We work diligently with the mayor’s office toward the goal of beautification of the corridor. Improvements to points of entry and along our business routes combined with new signs and landscaping have made Fort Dodge a welcoming experience.
Leaders in these industries have come to the area because of the specialized industry resources located in Fort Dodge. These resources include highly skilled professional and technical workers, workforce skills training programs and access to research and development experts; growth and development opportunities, including a pro-business environment and prime business development sites along major interstate/highway transportation corridors; and business connections with national and industry leaders.
