WHY
The EDC, through a Public/Private Partnership for Economic Diversification with the Collier County Board of Commissioners is updating our five-year strategic plan focused on job creation, innovation and entrepreneurship.

A key factor in the strategic planning process is community inclusion and collaboration. These workshops are designed to reach a broad number of stakeholders who will not only provide new and fresh perspectives, but provide insight that will be invaluable to building a plan for the future of the County.

This is particularly important as the Economic Development Council of Collier County maps out a business platform that will create jobs for the future.
