What are the challenges businesses face in Homer? That’s what the Homer Economic Development Advisory Commission hopes to answer by surveying business owners in the city.

Commissioner Rachel Lord presented a plan to the Homer City Council Monday that would survey businesses within city limits.

The commission hopes the data collected will help the city better understand ways it can help businesses.

“Our job growth and our economic development really is going to likely come most from the success and retention of the businesses we currently have,” Lord said.
