Economic Development Strategy

In February 2013, the Madison County Board of Supervisors adopted an Economic Development Strategy for Madison County. The final strategy (written and compiled by the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board), is reflective of a broad constituency and it paints a clear path forward to enhanced economic prosperity. Working in parallel with the Central New Regional Economic Development Council's strategic plan, the strategy for Madison County has positioned us ahead of pack in the economic development arena.
