The Year IV Economic Development Plan builds off the momentum of the previous year’s economic development work. In last year’s document, the efforts of individual municipalities were described and mapped.

This year’s plan looked at Current Conditions in the County, including population, transportation, and economic development trends, to better understand how the County is changing.

Secondly, the plan looked at the physical locations of our economic development assets as well as high job concentrations to identify priority areas for the next wave of economic development initiatives.
