H.E.A.R.T Longview

The Longview Chamber analyzed Longview’s economic environment, strengths and weaknesses, and the needs of the business community, resulting in the Strategic Initiatives for Leading Longview, H.E.A.R.T. That focus brought forth major initiatives in Health, Education, Advocacy, Redevelopment and Talent for the Longview trade area to support existing businesses while continuing to promote an environment that creates jobs and improves the quality of life in Longview. We continue the evolution of Leading Longview, H.E.A.R.T.: the Chamber’s contribution to ensure that next wave of economic progress.
