Work / Economic Development / Greene County Economic Development Corporation
Promoting economic development in Greene County, New York.
The Greene County Legislature created the Greene County Economic Development Corporation in 2019. It is the overarching authority for all economic development activities in Greene County.
For this organization, our targets are larger employers and destination businesses. We also need to attract owners of existing businesses who are seeking to relocate or expand. The website is simple and easy to use . It helps site selectors and developers find information to choose a location. Relevant supporting data is downloadable for their reports including:
- available sites
- location benefits
- economic indicators
and other valuable resources.
The core message is Greene County communities are Affordable, Beautiful and Commutable. Many residents commute to jobs in the Capital District and Hudson Valley regions. This group of people is an excellent workforce source. Greene County is a great area to relocate key employees to. This is especially true if the business moves from an area with a higher cost of living. Plus, businesses moving to Greene County, can still easily transport goods to Albany, Boston, or New York City.
The website features an updatable repository of Key Economic Indicators. It provides 18 major statistics and demographics on Population, Employment, Workforce Income, and Real Estate. The content administration tool enables updates of these indicators in a single table. When new annual data become available, it is easy to display the values in current year to previous years.
Popup offer boxes appear on relevant page content as the user scrolls. These offers encourage visitors to enter their contact information to download an offer. The information gets archived for future outreach efforts.
The economic development website links to other initiatives led by Greene County. This helps cross promote their consumer awareness program Buy in Greene. As well as their main street business attraction program Invest in Greene.
