In 2013, the Hunterdon County Board of Chosen Freeholders saw both the need and the opportunity to join Together North Jersey to forge a partnership and create a comprehensive economic development plan. Hunterdon County was at an economic crossroads and the decision was made to begin an extensive research and outreach project to plan the County’s economic future. This ultimately led to the creation of this Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), which was developed to guide Hunterdon County in regaining and maintaining economic prosperity. This document will serve as a blueprint for creating economic growth and job creation.

Once approved, this CEDS will become a roadmap for the County’s future. It creates concrete goals and objectives and actionable projects, and ensures coordination and consistency with regional priorities and other established land use plans. It allows residents of Hunterdon County to understand current conditions in the context of national and regional trends in order to best prepare for the future. Acceptance of this document by the United States Economic Development Administration (USEDA) will also make Hunterdon County eligible for federal funding opportunities for infrastructure projects and economic development initiatives. Continue Reading
