Encouraging Business

What are your thoughts? Personally, I 100% support businesses both large and small as well as economic development as it can reduce tax burdens on us all. However, in my opinion there is a need for business diversity. Having the same few types of businesses (gas stations, banks, storage facilities, assisted living facilities and car washes) narrows the scope of skill sets needed and in large numbers could artificially create its own labor shortage and market over saturation resulting in business closures.

Do you think our planning boards and councils should encourage economic diversity when considering approvals?
