Margaret Shaw recently discussed some of the initiatives of the City of Austin to foster job growth and redevelopment on Economic Perspectives.  To listen to the podcast of this interview click here: Margaret Shaw Interview.

As an Economic Redevelopment Program Manager for the City of Austin, Margaret Shaw helps attract businesses that enhance Austin’s livability and economic viability in a manner that preserves the community’s character and its environment.  She promotes commercial investment by industrial, manufacturing and export/import firms, primarily at/near the Austin airport.  Expanding these industries in Austin helps to meet the demands of an ever increasing population and provide job opportunities for residents without a four-year college degree.  She also helps to coordinate mixed-use redevelopment efforts in the central business district.
