PSJ selected for state pilot program

Leaders in the community, the DEO release details, will decide on a path to economic development that fits the community and begin to “build a scope for the effort” while being encouraged to set realistic goals and design and develop innovative strategies.

“The DEO will assist these communities in creating strategic economic development plans that are tailored for each community’s unique assets,” the release continues.

Meanwhile, the communities, while moving in paths unique for those areas, will be sharing information in order to build a network for economic development in disparate areas of the state.

“DEO understands there is power in collaboration and this program will build an active network of passionate community leaders who share and learn from each other’s experiences,” Panuccio said.

Gibson added, “If the pilot project produces I would think they would want to expand the program.”
