Town of Georgina retained the consulting firm, David Cash and Associates to undertake an update of the Socioeconomic Strategy. Based on the research and information gathered throughout the public consultation process, the Economic Strategy and Action Plan was developed. This Strategy recommends that staff focus on the following four key strategies that have the most potential to create employment growth and an increase in the non-residential tax base:
- Support the expansion of the Town's existing key businesses and target new business investment.
- Enhance and diversify the tourism industry.
- Leverage the economic impact of agriculture, food, and agri-tourism.
- Boost Investment Readiness and ensure places to grow and expand.
These four strategies are contained within the Action Plan that sets out action items and activities that will help further these strategic directions. The document as approved by Council is attached. Approved Economic Strategy and Action Plan
