Economic Development for Local Leaders Manual

The reasons why a community will engage in economic development activities varies greatly. Each community has unique characteristics and own reasons for actively engaging in economic development. Communities understand to create economic diversity, maintain and expand infrastructure, create a sustainable economy and to increase their ability to meet the needs of residents and businesses; they need to develop their economic development focus and goals. The more you understand about economic development, the more effective you can be in supporting your community’s economic development efforts. This manual is directed to all elected leaders including Mayors, Chiefs, council members and regional directors as well as economic development boards and team members.
