The strategy sets a general direction for economic development in Seneca County. Its theme, “Fostering The Next Generation Of Growth,” recognizes that there are a variety of businesses in the county—some located here for generations—that are poised for growth based upon their distinct positions in their respective markets, the deployment of new technology and the mobilization of talented workers. The goals and actions included in the strategy are intended to provide specific means to support these firms— and the County itself—to grow and prosper in the 21st Century. You can learn about the planning process by clicking here.

The link to the strategy document is accompanied by a link to the SWOT analysis for the County’s economy. The SWOT is a crystallization of the research that informed the strategy.
