2016 Economic Strategy and Action Plan
In February of 2016 the Town of Georgina retained the consulting firm, David Cash and Associates to undertake an update of the 2009 Socioeconomic Strategy. Based on the research and information gathered throughout the public consultation process, the 2016 Economic Strategy and Action Plan has been 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.
