The Henderson County Partnership For Economic Development recently worked with Creative Economic Development Consulting to update their Industrial recruitment strategy.  As a part of the process, the  SWOT analysis ranked the Ecusta Trail highly as an opportunity for economic development. 

The Henderson County Partnership has been very successful in landing major economic development projects such as Sierra Nevada, GF Linamar, and Norafin in recent years.  Friends of the Ecusta Trail have been advocating for years that the trail would not only be a catalyst for small businesses, but would also be a significant tool in recruiting larger economic development projects.  Click here to read more about the announcement and strategy.
