According to TEDC
Director Karel Littman, by having the commercial property owners in town rebuild, renovate and redevelop, the township can increase the taxes that such improved commercial properties bring in.

The production and distribution of the data to the public, according to the TEDC
, has positioned the northeast as an area of choice for exploration companies and is a valuable economic development tool.
Information gathered through this survey, will provide the TEDC
with the baseline information necessary to develop a housing investor attraction strategy.
With these pieces in place as an initial set of building blocks, the TEDC
is working to bring additional partnerships to the city, though Marinig acknowledges that such efforts take time and effort.
The group will be overseen by a coordinator, as well as city and TEDC
staff, who will be guided by the results of a study analyzing alternate uses for the Met site.
The move, says TEDC
CEO Christy Marinig, would further allow Timmins to retain students and skilled workers who would otherwise travel to Sudbury or southern Ontario.
However, the exact size, location and even internal components are still up in the air, as the TEDC
is still in the early stages of determining the perceived level of need from within the community.
