Sullivan County Regional Economic Profile

Economic Development

Project Summary:

Community members, leaders and partners have been meeting since October 2017 to participate in a Regional Economic Profile program, facilitated by UNH Cooperative Extension, which aims to help the Sullivan County region clarify its strengths, challenges and avenues to enable economic development. Volunteer participants have met approximately every six weeks to define the most pressing issues that they can feasibly address with an impactful project. The group has narrowed down many points of discussion to form three task forces: Workforce, Economic Infrastructure and Regional Identity. The agendas and meeting summaries posted here, as well as information updates, will help tell the story of the REP’s discussions, action planning and outputs.

 

Additional Information

One exciting output of the Regional Identity Task Force is the LoveSullivan Project, which looks to capture what is unique about Sullivan County via an ArcGIS web-based mapping app that asks county residents to share their favorite places. Participants simply use their smartphone or camera to take a photo and navigate to bit.ly/LoveSullivan (case sensitive) to upload the photo and share why the place is meaningful to them. Historical buildings or sites, trails, parks, local organizations, restaurants and businesses are all great choices to share.

The project will collect photos and information for the next several months. As the map fills, the Regional Identity Task Force will explore next steps to expand the project’s impact.

The next meeting of the Regional Economic Profile will be held May 22, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Sugar River Valley Technical Center in the Lou Thompson Room. Community members and partners are warmly encouraged to attend.
