In Miller, we know that business recruitment is a common, traditional approach used to spur economic growth. Cities offer companies tax breaks and other financial incentives to attract them to an area. While it’s true that the right company can bring in hundreds of jobs and have a dramatic impact on a region, in our global economy this process of courting companies has become more competitive than ever. This makes it important to also focus on promoting homegrown businesses, something On Hand Development Corporation actively does.
In Miller, South Dakota, our youth are more than our future – they are our present leaders. We don't believe in waiting until our youth are grown to involve them in the community.

Every year, Miller’s youth leaders are able to hear ideas and use them to inspire annual projects at home.
