New Regional Economic Councils

Governor Cuomo announced that New York is “Open for Business” ! New Regional Economic Council’s were revealed this month seeking to create a more holistic, targeted and comprehensive process for economic development in New York. The ten councils across the state will serve as single points of contact for economic activity and will develop five-year Strategic Plans which will compete for Regional Economic Competitive Grants and tax credits from a variety of agencies including the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the NYS Canal Corporation. Public input will be a component of the councils which are currently taking public suggestions  and it is recommended that each council hold two public forums while developing the strategic plan expected to be completed by November 2011.
