The CenterState Agenda for Economic Opportunity is a collaborative response to the region’s need to transform its unique strengths into globally competitive assets.
Steeped in extensive data analysis, it reflects more than two years of work. It draws from national experts as well as the engagement of hundreds of stakeholders across the region. Anchored in the commitment to grow opportunity across the entire 12-county region, together we designed a comprehensive, strategic approach to make the most of our opportunities and address our challenges.
The work proceeded in tandem with the New York State Regional Economic Development Councils. It drew extensively from the unprecedented public input and planning by the Central New York, Southern Tier, North Country, Finger Lakes and Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development areas, all of which include some counties in the region.
