BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. – The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote on adopting the first-ever countywide Economic Development Strategic Plan Tuesday.
The plan was prepared by TIP Strategies of Austin, Texas in consultation with every elected supervisor, stakeholders who represent key segments of the local economy and members of the general public who submitted their suggestions on a project website.
TIP made three visits to Saratoga County over the course of five months and unveiled their initial findings during a public report at the November Board of Supervisors meting.
"Tomorrow's vote marks the culmination of five months of collaborative work focused on reinvigorating economic development efforts in Saratoga County," Board of Supervisors Chairman Paul Sausville said. "The forward-thinking recommendations contained in the Strategic Plan will guide those efforts for the next five to ten years."
Prior to the vote, TIP's managing director and principal will make a public presentation on the strategic plan and solicit additional feedback from the board. The full board will have the opportunity to suggest improvements to the draft plan right up until the time it is adopted.
The vote is scheduled for 4 p.m. in the Board Room.
