EDC: Growing Opportunities for People

The cornerstone of our mission at the EDC is to create and maintain successful, vibrant, and sustainable communities.

We make the most of our area by supporting the existing cultural, recreational and natural assets that are unique to our region. We realize that our location at the northern tip of the Capital Region and the southern gateway to the Adirondack Park is one of our greatest strategic advantages. Furthermore, we welcome high-level professionals to consider living and working in our communities.

EDC’s key initiatives include:

  • Expanding reliable broadband
  • Creating sustainable communities
  • Growing our workforce
  • Job creation
  • Promoting new housing
  • Support for startups
  • Transportation
