The Delaware County Economic Development Plan establishes a place-based approach to economic development.

The Economic Development Plan outlines a long-range, placed-based strategy that builds upon the unique features of Delaware County. It identifies trends in industry, employment, and housing that affect the markets of the twenty-first century and connects them to an action plan tailored to the different types of places. The plan emphasizes the importance of maintaining the unique sense of place across the County as communities address the changing needs of a twenty-first-century economy.  It is a component of Delaware County 2035, the County’s comprehensive plan, and further details recommendations from Growing from Within: A Blueprint for Growth.
