Economic Development Strategic Plan
The Garrett County Department of Business Development is drafting the county’s new Economic Development Strategic Plan. This plan will rework and update the most-recent county plan that was approved in 2013.
Feedback has been solicited from each of the eight municipal governments, local organizations, and the local business community. Two open, in-person sessions are scheduled for public input.
Both sessions will be held in Room 111 in the GIEC at Garrett College. Participant opinions and points will be considered on the following suggested topics: workforce, housing, job creation, population loss, expansion, and other economic initiatives.
A draft of the plan is expected to be completed by November 2022.
