The mission of the Economic Development Committee is to build our understanding of economic development policies and practices in an effort geared towards advocating for various initiatives that will enhance the economic standing of the residents of this City. We examine a range of issues, including, but not limited to, housing, waterfront development and transportation. The committee invites leaders in Economic Development to discuss these issues with small working-groups of our members in pursuit of this mission.
Between discussing the new economy and building big, the Economic Development Committee is focused on keeping "Empire" in front of New York State. We bring industry and municipal leaders together to discuss the financial challenges we face and strive to identify solutions because talk is cheap. If you want to see the elimination of stagnant and stifling economic thinking, join the team and help advocate for sustainable economic progress through our forums.
