Freeholders Adopt Economic Development Action Plan Matrix

The Warren County Board of Chosen Freeholders on November 9, 2016 adopted the Economic Development Action Plan Matrix prepared by Tetra Tech and Camoin Associates. The report is available by clicking here.

Tetra Tech, hired by the freeholers to serve as the county's economic development contractor, worked with Camoin to conduct the study and develop the recommendations found in the Action Plan Matrix. The strategies and objectives in the Action Plan Matrix are derived from feedback gathered at stakeholder focus groups and discussions with the EDC over the planning process. The Matrix is meant to be clear and concise, providing readers with an understanding of Warren County’s goals, while also being easy to digest for a range of audiences. The plan includes concrete, actionable implementation steps that address current economic conditions throughout Warren County’s municipalities, and maximize use of the county’s natural and tourist assets as economic engines to increase visitors and discretionary spending in the county. The objectives and catalyzing actions are built off of a strong foundation of key economic development principles and tools that are summarized in the report.
