About Future Sioux Falls

As part of a comprehensive effort to continue to expand the Sioux Falls area´s competitiveness and livability for businesses and individuals, Forward Sioux Falls, City of Sioux Falls, Minnehaha and Lincoln counties, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation and the Sioux Empire United Way underwent a strategic economic development planning process to enhance economic development activities and programs in the Sioux Falls area for the next 20 years and beyond.

Market Street Services, a national economic and workforce development consulting firm, facilitated the process of developing of a new economic strategy for the Sioux Falls area. At the end of this months-long effort, the Sioux Falls area had an achievable roadmap to guide short- and long-term growth. The Forward Sioux Falls 2011-2016 program was developed in part using the economic development strategies that were most appropriate for the business community to tackle and fit in with existing Forward Sioux Falls programs and initiatives.
