The Town Board created an Economic Development Committee (EDC) in November 2011 to advance initiatives to support economic growth for residents and businesses within the Town of Southold. The volunteer committee is charged with promoting economic vitality through implementing the goals and objectives as outlined in the draft Economic Chapter of the Town’s developing comprehensive plan, “Southold 2020.”
The Economic Development Committee will facilitate the successful economic growth and revitalization of existing businesses while attracting new commerce and cultural opportunities that complement the true spirit and character of the community, resulting in long-term employment possibilities and a diversified economic base that will further benefit the quality of life enjoyed by all who live and visit the Town.
