The next collective step toward economic development services in Canandaigua is about to be taken.
And the city and town are looking for a few good women and men to help bring business to Canandaigua.
The city and town of Canandaigua and the Chamber of Commerce recently joined forces to form an economic development entity that will serve the greater Canandaigua business community.
The Canandaigua Local Development Corporation (LDC) will have three member groups: the Town Board, the City Council, and the Chamber board, plus an eight-member board of directors, according to City Manager John Goodwin.
Once it’s up and running by fall, the LDC can then drive recommendations for improved economic development, such as making downtown a destination, connecting the area by Canandaigua Lake to downtown businesses, and adding more manufacturing jobs to the area, among others.
