GSLI Welcomes Harvey County, KS, as a Renewing Program Member

Harvey County

April 17, 2023 – Dallas, Texas & Harvey County, KS – Global Site Location Industries (GSLI), a leading site selection and economic development consulting firm, is pleased to announce that Harvey County, KS, have continued their GSLI partnership in the ELITE CITIES Program for another year to continue promoting their area to the over 100 active projects GSLI identifies and engages with throughout the year. 

Harvey County also continued their investment into Lighthouse AI360 Program which educates over 2,500 key companies of the benefits of locating to this great county in the Wichita MSA. This county offers the lower prices and slower lifestyle of a rural, agricultural area while being just minutes from the heart of Wichita. Through this partnership, GSLI will help these communities execute their potential by building relationships with administrations of site location companies planning operation facility expansions.

“The county and its communities offer an ideal family environment with affordable, quiet neighborhoods,” Beth Shelton, Executive Director of Harvey County Economic Development. “A superior education system, abundant amenities, and top notch healthcare ensure the residents enjoy a high quality of life. Nothing can beat the small community lifestyle with easy access to all the larger city to the south can offer when the need arises.”

Shelton has been working with the area for over seven years. “I love the fact that at the end of the day all of our organizations’ efforts support improving the community,” she said, “and making Harvey County a better place for people to work and live.”

GSLI’s Elite will help Harvey County increase their pipeline of qualified expansion projects. GSLI will focus its efforts on targeted expansion projects and developing relationships with key decision-makers through aggressive outreach on their behalf.
