Economic Development Partners Initiative
Collaboration is the hallmark of CCEDC and the Economic Development Partners Initiative (EDPI) epitomizes collaboration among regional leaders. This initiative was launched to create tax ratable commercial and industrial properties and permanent, full-time, sustainable jobs in those areas of Chester County overlooked by the development boom of the past several decades. The common denominator of these areas are the emergence of cluster planning/action groups, the existence of local, job-ready workforces, municipalities proactively seeking help to create tax ratables and the potential availability of public/private capital investments.
Although in its infancy, the EDPI has already worked with key entities to facilitate positive change in Chester County along the Route 1 Corridor, in the City of Coatesville, and along the Routes 23 and 724 Corridors.
