Cambridge Economic Development Strategic Plan

City of Cambridge Maryland HyattIn early 2009, the City launched an effort to develop an Economic Strategy. The objective of the strategic planning process was to help the citizens of Cambridge position the city for growth. The resulting Economic Strategy will guide the City's activities over the next five years and generate positive economic outcomes.

This initiative was led by a Steering Committee of community volunteers and staff that produced nine distinct recommendations. An Action Plan for implementation is included with a suggested timeline that provides specific direction to the City's economic development community.
