Positively Promoting Piqua and Grow Piqua Now -- a Mutuality of Interest

Positively Promoting Piqua's mission is "to help Piqua improve and grow as an outstanding community in which to live and work." Click the "About Us" button in the panel on the left side of any page of this site for details as to who we are and what we believe.

PPP recognizes that there are many aspects to a great community, including clean, safe and attractive neighborhoods; diverse and well supported public amenities; and a strong culture of positive and constructive civic participation. But all of these are in turn dependent on Piqua's economic growth and vitality. Economic development is key to the many things that will help Piqua be a great community.

Grow Piqua Now is a strong advocate and instrument for economic development in Piqua. A private-public partnership formed in 2006, GPN deals professionally and continuously with the realities of economic growth and promoting Piqua as a great place to do business. To learn more about Grow Piqua Now -- what it is, who is part of it, what it's doing to help our community grow, and how you can help -- we encourage you to visit GPN's web site: growpiquanow.org.
