ECOS Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The Chittenden County Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) document is a community-based undertaking coordinated by the Greater Burlington Industrial Corporation (GBIC) in an effort to inventory economic development activities taking place within the county. Composed of individually-reported projects and research submitted by citizen work groups, the CEDS document is a yearly update to better understand the ways in which our county is growing and where it may be headed.
