The draft Economic Development Strategic Plan prepared for the City of Cumberland by RKG Associates of Alexandria, Virginia, is posted online for public review through 2 city websites.
The Mayor and City Council of Cumberland contracted with RKG Associates over seven months ago and tasked them with undertaking a city-wide economic development strategic planning process. A steering committee was formed and stakeholder interviews with local business leaders, financing entities, property owners and developers, elected officials, and economic development professionals were held, along with a series of public meetings designed to inform the community of the process and solicit their input. The culmination of these efforts has resulted in a detailed strategic plan that offers strategies and recommendations for future economic development initiatives tailored to assist the City of Cumberland in meeting its business development objectives.
The public is encouraged to review the Draft Economic Development Strategic Plan.
